July 17, 2007

The water-maker produced drinking water after I worked on it for about four hours.  I think the problem was air in the system.  It works by putting pressure on the water and is interrupted by air.

I had excellent winds on Sunday and rowed the boat south easily.  I tucked myself into bed after midnight and set my alarm to get five hours of sleep.  The boat stayed on course while I slept.  So I decided to sleep four more hours.

The winds had changed when I woke up.  Waves rocked the boat and made it hard to row.

By talking to my weather expert, Dane Clark, I found out that I was almost to a point where I could receive winds that would take me south.  Today I have a light breeze from the southwest with calm seas.
