We did have a few gremlins…
– The sat tv positioning unit seems to have welded itself into one position. They lost television the second they lost the docks. The crew wanted to watch the Presidential debate and couldn’t .. oh well
– The 16kw generator was running, but not putting out power. They flipped to the 25kw and all was well. I just spoke to the crew and gave them tips on resolving the problem. My guess is that it is just a blown fuse.
– The a/c stopped working, and they fought with it for five hours. It is REALLY hot and humid there, and the crew was miserable. The a/c has never worked right on the boat, and will be fixed soon — but, not soon enough for the crew. They finally got it limping along, and will work on it today.
This really is not much given how long the boat sat. I’m impressed!
And, on the positive side, they had smooth calm seas, and arrived several hours ahead of plan (they were in the dock by 1am last night).
The weather forecaster has said that their next leg, a 1,200 mile passage to Hualtuco Mexico, should also be a smooth ride, if they’ll wait until Monday to leave.
So…. all is good on Sans Souci, and the ship is ready to go as soon as the weather window opens.
