Maintaining Speed

P9091591 We received the replacement speed transducer from Andersen Marine while we were in Mackay. I fitted it the other day and we can again see how much tidal currents contribute to our speed. Yes, as shown in the picture, we were getting up to 3.5 knots of current going down the Whitsunday passage today on a rising tide.

Actually, I’ve really enjoyed the opportunity to do some maintenance to the boat while on this trip. Apart from fitting the new speed transducer, I’ve made up a new bridle, fender ropes and performed a regular service to both diesel engines. That’s on top of the repairs after our bit of trouble with the boom.
