The SSB radio and Pactor modem are now being prepared to go over the top of the washing machine on a new shelf which involves removing the washing machine first, the cables have to be organised with cables and connections to the main unit at the nav station.
|This was such a mess to sort out|
|Dons favourite seat with a view.|

All complicated stuff. It seems like a never ending task but it has to be done for our safety at sea, communication is very important.
|Long way up, or down depending on how you feel|

|Now where has he gone ?|
|Will we ever be tidy ?|
|Quite a sharp turn to leave here|
|Don in another hole, I'm really beginning to wonder about him|
Ocean village is very close to the runway and it can be quite noisy when the Easyjet and Monarch flight take off and land, I'm sure we can see the passengers looking out the windows.
So far we have shopped at Morrisons which is not too far now we found a shortcut, the first try was almost 20 minutes now its about 10. Not cheap though at least we can buy those long lost UK bits we have missed.
|A busy Cockpit, not much room to sit, its full of Hydravane bits|
Although the marina is very full it can be pretty sometimes.As yet we expect to be here fore another week to install the important bits although we are really looking forward to some rest before we set off again. The weather in the Atlantic is not good for us yet so you will probably see yet another post from Gibraltar.
