We have also been switching Maunie from Ocean to Coastal mode, so Winnie the Windpilot's rudder and wind-vanes have been packed away and the ocean charts have been replaced by coastal pilot books.
The Port Bundaberg Marina is great - really well organised and with some nice facilities.
|The excellent Cruisers' Cove with free BBQ, fridge-freezer, kettle and crockery provided|
We decided to focus on a few time-consuming boat jobs before we head south towards Brisbane in the next couple of days. Our deck remains the main area of focus since the repair of the main leak at Chesterfield Reef showed up some additional problems. Taking down the headlining (ceiling) in the forecabin showed some obvious signs of damp:
|Water leaking past three bolt heads|
|Back to hands and knees work on deck|
|A proper watertight fix - the bolt holes were drilled oversize, filled with epoxy filler then drilled and tapped so that we don't just rely on sealant at the top of the bolt hole to prevent water ingress.|
|Now, where's my spirit level?|
