A Short Day

Location: Highbourne Cay, Exumas, Bahamas

Log: 3258

Miles Traveled today: 6

Total Trip Distance: 619

We blew a fuse on the anchor windlass this morning when the chain stuck in the opening through the deck. After hand winching the anchor the rest of the way up, and finding out that seas were rough and it would be a long day, we decided to turn in to the Highbourne Cay Marina after about an hour of travel. We needed some time to fool with the windlass and determine what it needs and we’re hoping for more gentle seas tomorrow.

We may miss the Super Bowl tonight as there is no TV here for guests. We’re still receiving satellite TV but we do not get the regular networks on the boat. We have heard that there is a “camp” for the employees here that has a TV and might get the game. We may wander there this evening to see if we can watch it. Meanwhile, we’re going to work on repairs.
