On the 20th of March our local engineer serviced Elektra’s engine, its something I could do myself but I always find Anthony quick off the mark for repairs in the sailing season when I don’t have time, so like to give him some regular work as will.
In the evening on the high water we cast off Elektra’s winter mooring lines and picked up one of her stern anchors and slowly motored her out from Carne Creek to St Antony beach ready for the boatyard to pressure wash her bottom the following day.
Arriving at St Anthony heading for the beach I dropped the stern anchor again and added another mooring line. Our friend Roger was on the beach and offered to take our bow line as we motored in slowly. Now moored fore and aft, we packed up and went ashore in the dinghy.
