Graptolite - Graptolite Day 4

Wednesday 22nd November 2023, 23:7.10N 19:3.45W

The day was spent almost entirely hanging over the bow trying to get the genoa to furl. Additional parts of the Furlex went to the bottom in the process as the attraction between seawater, tools and equipment bits is strong in these waters but the new furling drum we made from a plastic crate seems to be doing the trick.

There was a good sing-along in the cockpit in the evening including recordings of well-known songs with lyrics butchered to include mention of "Graptolite" which we made on the 2007 crossing.
