I wanted to do some work last weekend, but again mother nature intervened. There was a bad weather forecast fo Saturday with strong southerly and rain, but I really wanted to do saomething, so Maja and me drove on Sunday morning. We left Zagreb at 6am, arrived to Poreč at 9am, had coffee and breakfast with our good friends, Andrej & Jelena and went to Vrsar on the boat.
There is so much work to be done, it is difficult to plan what to do first… but to be honest, every little thing we do is an improvement, so patience will be essential! I always have to remember that. Baby steps 🙂
Maja measured the hatches, because all of them are leaking and I would like to install new ones. Meanwhile, I measured the seacocks. I will have to replace all seacocks as soon as possible. They look like they are in bad shape and it’s the biggest worry for me now. I just hope they work for another couple of months before I haul the boat out to do the antifouling (mussels are growing under the waterline). I bailed some more water out of the bilges and took out the old radio, oven, gas bottles and some wooden panels to work on them in Zagreb.
Andrej and Jelena came to visit us, so we took a break, had a beer, walked around Vrsar and commented on the boats moored in the neighborhood. When we came back to the boat, I was already a bit tired and I started to pack the things we took out from the boat to my car, but Maja was just warming up. She started to clean the galley and she just didn’t want to stop… The result was astonishing, amazing, incredible! But more about that I’m my next post…
We left Vrsar at 7pm, got back to Zagreb really tired at 10pm, but we found the strength to take everything out of the car to the basement which is now completely full of stuff from the boat..
