Well, I’m bit behind. Natalie and I have been pretty busy for the past week. It started out with lots of work on Astraea’s holding tank. Natalie and I took Clay’s truck out to see a plastic welder about making a new custom tank that matches the dimensions of the old tank. His estimate was about $1500! I’m going to see how I can fit the biggest tank made by Ronco Plastics. Bill in the marina office recommended calling ahead and driving up to the plant where they make them to save on shipping and get a factory direct price.
While preparing to leave San Diego we taped plastic bags over the leaky windows on Astraea. Later that night I inflated the dinghy using the electric air pump. It took just a few minutes to blow it up. Then I stored it upside down on the forecastle over a leaky hatch.
We left for Lizze’s wedding. Eric and Jaime will be taking care of Koku while we’re gone. I expect they’ll be spoiling him until we get back.
