The wind is now blowing hard from the north and is predicted to stay that way into this coming weekend, so we're here for a while. It will be a good time to both rest up and do some work on the boat. The time has come to change the oil, impeller, and fuel filters. And I (Jim) will be attempting to fix a fuel leak in the engine's injection pump. O-rings are being FedExed and should arrive on Friday. We also have a new auto-pilot on it's way to replace the one that died a few days ago.
It will be fun to spend the 4th of July in the U.S. again. It's hard to believe that it was a year ago what we celebrated the day with a dock party full of cruisers in Papeete, Tahiti.
