We are now officially in dry dock, our ferry left for the shipyard and will be amongst other things, fitted with new engines.
A few islanders remain and rely on their personal boat for mainland access in case of emergency!
Ours is a 14ft row boat...We are not likely to attempt crossing in a skiff!
Fire/Medical emergencies will rely on a 'nearby' island for response (approximately 1 hour and 15 min...)
Storms in the forecast...Thundering at the moment...
Supplies are in and we have battened down the hatches...Let's hope we do not lose the power!
Marooned and loving it!
Note: The ferry should return within 2 to 3 weeks providing we pass USCG's inspection!
