Bummer Day

I have been planning to sail to a Penang over Christmas. But I have been waiting for boat parts that were scheduled to be here two days ago. Customs is holding them up for some reason. And of course closing for Christmas. The good news is I cleaned the threads on the maxi-prop so I can put the New anode on.Fair winds and following seas  😉
