Noon Position: Docked in Lunenburg, NS, Canada
Weather: Overcast, foggy, rain, H 18c L 14c, barometer 1008
Finally our Engineer was able to work outside today! So much of his job takes place below decks that this afternoon, despite the foggy rain, he was grinning from ear to ear to be able to spend some time readjusting the stuns’l boom. The rest of the crew rotated between helping to hoist the fore t’gallant yard, row training in Monomoy, practicing line handling and gaining hands on experience with immersion suits and life rafts in the pool at emOcean. When a day is jam packed with this much variety, it goes by incredibly quickly!
Ship’s Work: Row training in Monomoy; practicing sheeting home; hoisted fore t’gallant mast; tensioned backstays on t’gallant mast; session in pool with immersion suits and life raft. Engine room: Consult with L&B Electric on setting up shore power DC 10 switch on the board; deck plates scrubbed; continued work on removing old bilge pump; readjusted stuns’l boom iron.
