Not much happening at the moment. The wind calmed down, but there are still huge waves. The boat is leaking on starboard, probably caused by the latest collision from the foil a couple of days ago. I pulled the foil in to make sure it does not get more damaged. This means less speed, but hopefully less water in the boat as well. Water in the front of the boat runs past the “water-resistant partitioning walls” to the back of the boat…
AAHHHBufff…!
The “entrance” of the water intake used to cool the motor and water maker is also leaking; I have to pump out the water every hour. I connected the bilge pump with a hose to the section it is leaking into, so I only have to press a button. As easy as you’d like !
It will be challenging to stay in this weather system. If I do not manage to do so, I will slow down a lot and get a mega storm over me because of the depression on the east coast of the US.
Cheers, Pieter
