Marsh Harbour Boat Yard
We finished with all the oil changes about an hour and a half later: lots of preparation helped, having the right tools, parts, and, to prevent any mess, we’d brought lots of oil rags, absorber mats and containers for the used oil. Ron was on top of it, I have to admit!! With the wind, the rags and mats were essential, as the gusts would somehow fling thin strands of oil everywhere. UGH! Once back in the water, the engines ran beautifully as we bumped our way lumpily home to the Equinox. Whitecaps and 4’ waves in the Sea of Abaco...kind of hard to believe how rough it is!
We showered gratefully, then relaxed in the afternoon, reading, doing crosswords and listening to the roaring of the wind as we rocked in our anchorage... there’s no sitting in the sun today, even on the aft cockpit, as there’s no escaping the wind today. Nevertheless....it’s beautiful looking out the windows, and we love where we are, love the boat we’re on, and very appreciative of what we have. Freezing or not, we’re still “living the dream!” And...loving it!
