That’s how long we’ve been going at it full speed now, well full-ish speed, the last few days we’ve been slowing down a bit. Totally understanding since we’ve been working long days out in the sun with no rest in between, but now we’re starting to feel it. So today we start a bit later and I take time to post a bit of pictures from this weeks work.
New little friend

Most booring phone ever 😉
Next week the fun wiring and connecting black boxes to other colored boxes starts…. …that will be interesting at the best.
Today we had our first real day spent working on Trusty.
Morning started out cloudy and gray but we looked a bit at all the things inside that needed to be sorted out. The new saltwater pump was working fine and after a lunch at Korvans (a nice small burger and sausage kiosk, aka korvmoj) the rain stopped and we could go back and work again.
We’re moving our radar down a meter from where it used to be because we’re installing a AIS system, now we won’t need that long-range radar coverage and can focus on getting a better resolution closer to us.
Fixing the anchor windlass
We sorted out the new anchor windlass and its up and running, that will be our most useful piece of equipment on Trusty. Raising our anchor without sweat, tears and hard language will help saving the sanity of the crew 😉
Notice the sky color of the sky in the two pictures, it’s much easier working when the weather is more like the second picture and now we have started for real. All of a sudden the million things we were worried about just fell into place. All the work seem manageable and not that hard. Soon, soon we’re starting the real adventure.
