After a trip that included a severe thunderstorm I am here on Marina Island in Pangkor. At the moment I am anchored out but expect to move into a slip tomorrow. I expect to stay here about a month and give Reboot an in depth review and overhaul. At the end of the month I will do a haul-out and paint the bottom. Fair winds and following seas:)

Wind instrument revisited

Things have calmed down quite a bit so I went up on the foredeck. Amazing. The Garmin wind instrument is still there. Now to find out why it is not transmitting. In port. One of “Roger s Rules” is to avoid fixing things underway. One might make things worse.¬†Fair winds and following seas:)

Wind instrument

Last night saw strong winds and thunderstorms. Apparently at some point my Garmin wind instrument decided to depart Reboot. Very frustrating but not quite as bad as when the radar dome decided to fall from the mast to the deck. Sailing is always an adventure.  Fair winds and following seas:)
