How are you?
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.
