Hi friends of PkBoo.Finally tradewinds went to visit our boat and we are sailing fast in direction of St Lucia.Only some problems with a high rate voltage from the alternator of the engine that has unset our instruments and the display of the engine; promplty repaired and now it's all good.The crew is becoming boring to stay in the ocean and we all hope to arrive in Rodney Bay to have a fresh long shower and, for me, to meet my great wife Chiara and my friends Salvatore and Denise. We also need to arrive to celebrate Elena's birthday on 14th. See you in Rodney Bay soon on this screens.CiaoMarcoP.S.

PkBoo - PKBOO Log Day 17 - Bob & two tuna fish
Hi friends of PkBoo.Yesterday Bob, the parasailor, had a really good job for us and increased our speed to 6.5 - 7 kts.During the afternoon two big tuna fishes wanted to entered in our crew; one, the biggest (around 18 kg and called mr fish) was caught and the other one relised. Now we are thinking about the rules of mr fish; on the oven with potatoes? Fried? Boiled and kept in the oil with onions and tomatoes? Probably all of these but suggestions from home are appreciated.Our autopilot Pedro Himenez is running well, while the watermaker has some problem but we have enough water.See you tomorrow on this channel.CiaoMarco. read more...
