Bosun here: Everything is good onboard. Today we had a nice Thursday with a big fat sunny sky. We managed to do some maintenance and some sailhandling . Today I didn’t ruin any of the off-watch`s sweet dreams with rust-busting or coking the deck. So everybody is in a good mood laughing and hugging each other.
We put some paint on some hatches, we ran out of primer (and hamburgers sadly for Joel), witch put and end to all the paint jobs until we reach France and new primer-supplies!!!
