January 28, 2009: Leaky Lucky turns back, again

We had to turn back again after two hours out towards the Bahamas. Too much water coming in. We were having a wonderful sail, but Richard was starting to pull lines and stuff. We would not have turned back, but for the water. Richard says the guy upstairs intervened so he wouldn’t damage himself.
We think we may have figured out the cause of the water problem, but it will need a haulout to fix it. The only place Richard didn’t reinforce and reset in epoxy was the brace for the bowsprit, which is above water when we are sitting still and below water when we are under way. Voila!
Anyway, keep in touch.
