The outboard is off being serviced. This time I remembered to take the remote tank and hose, at the mechanics recommendation. I have never thought that fuel flowed properly so maybe they can clear that up. The hull painting is finished but needs a few bits touching up. I'll do that after the boot top anti fouling is finished. I put on the first coat this evening. Horrible smell. I think some of the hull green might come off with the masking tape, hence my delay in touching up.
Life jackets stayed inflated over 24 hours, so I have rearmed them. No need for new ones this year, which I had feared.
I have discovered that Waitrose sell single portion bottles of wine. I have never carried wine before because I never want more than a glass full, and a whole bottle would be largely wasted. Now I have a choice of wine or beer. Luxury afloat indeed.
