we are still in Séte, unfortunatelly something wrong with the engine. After a lot of looking for the reason of the problem, with the help of Michael who lives in the boat besides us, we found the potencial problem. A faulty diesel pump! I wasn’t happy, so i call to Ulf in Sweden, my excellent boat mechanic and he agreed that that was problably the problem. So i went looking for a new pump. On the third place i asked they could help me, but it would take two weeks to get a new pump!!!! We have been here for one week and i’m geting creasy with staying sooo long on the same harbour.
But after seeing my desperation they tried to find one on some local dealers and they found one…. for the modest price of 160 Euro…. of course i bought it. 24 hours later i had it on my hands, now i just need to install it on the engine… :-\
Jenny has been busy with fixing all the wood details of Siska, she looks wonderfull, and it feels great to have the mast up again.
We had some free internet for a while in the harbour but now it’s finished and i am seating on a internet café, we were leaving Séte on Sunday BUT after checking the weather it looks like it´s going to blow a lot… my family won’t like it… so let’s see if we should wait.
We really want to get going south where the sun will give the warm we are looking for.
It is warm here but the mornings are starting to be cold.
Love to you all,
Nuno the Sailing Coach
