16th March 2020: Captain reports;

Fuel guy says fuel will be here this afternoon.  I’m 2 days out as soon as we get it. Will update this afternoon. Hopefully be underway this evening.


16th March 2020: Captain reports;

Have had main on #2 reef whole time because of cracks. They appear have grown a little.  Def taking it easy on the rig.   Turnbuckles are turned almost all the way down. Much more stratch than I’d expect from a boat only as old as it is. Been running engines at 2k which has kept sog average 9.2kts. Without engines boat sog was under 7. High water alarm on port side goes off every 2-3 hours underway and manually turning on bilge for 3-4 minutes remedies the alarm.  Do not know where water is coming from.  Catamarans in Tortola said stb rail leaks but haven’t had any alarms on the side despite that being windward side and at times some very sloppy seas.

Haven’t run generator since road town  except for a couple of hours last night to charge batteries and it struggled to start twice despite showing plenty of voltage on gen start battery.  3rd attempt it cranked. Wind instruments show apparent direction but wind speed is out. Every now and then instrument will spin but not freely so data  is wrong when there is data. That’s the trip so far. Hopefully good news on fuel. Tues will be a little northerly and I’m gonna need it.


16th March 2020: Captain reports;
