Just got a call from Adventurer Number One and he says they are back in the water and heading for Georgetown!

Steering issue was a blown hydraulic line at the pump. They went to a local NAPA and they made one while they waited.

Let's hope that's the end of their mechanical issues.

Onward!

Cool, I bet that made a hell of a mess.

Yep. He told me last night the bilge was full of hydraulic fluid.

We made a stop to show Hans and Marc the wild pigs at Big Major Cay on our way down to Georgetown.

In the last pic I figured it was safe to swim at Big Major Cay if the pigs have not been eaten by sharks since I was was there a year ago!! Would that make a tasty meal for them.

Thanks Jim and others. Hans and Marc flew back to FL early this morning. I found I could get a direct flight from Nassau to Toronto at 3 PM today so will have some time to relax a little and post more pics later this morning. Wind is really howling this morning so secured the boat about 5:30 PM in Georgetown just in time. Plan is to resume our trip to Turks and Caicos late next week, weather provided.
