Mila back in the water

It’s been a long 2 years for Mila on the hard at Power Boats but eventually she was launched on the 27th of May and all went well. Nick and Lynette from the yacht Ukulele Lady joined me for a weekend in Scotland Bay. Unfortunately the fan belt broke on the engine with serious repercussions. The cam belt broke causing the timing to go out and this bent an exhaust valve and broke the cam shaft. The spares had to come from Sweden and up to date I am waiting for the mechanic to assemble the head. Promised me to have it ready a week ago, but this is Trinidad. Mila is on a mooring in Chaguaramas Bay. We have 15 South African boats moored around us.
Our plans are to sail to Tobago as soon as the engine is fixed and then further north as far as Bequia, depending on the hurricanes
Till later
