Dec. 22 – it’s always something

Getting ready to leave Richards Bay for Simon’s Town.  In the middle of oil changes for the Yanmar and Beta the seacock wasn’t letting water in.  Then the toilet wouldn’t flush for lack of water.  hmmm.

not a happy camper Jim had to dive under the boat (in disgusting marina water) to investigate.

apparently this little puffer fish went up the seacock, got scared, puffed, got stuck and died.

i’m sure there’s a lesson in all this somewhere.
