I spent much of the day cleaning up aboard and doing inventory so that I know not only what I have but where it is stored.
For dinner I went over to Carmen and Bernd's boat Mau but since I had neglected to thaw out the Bolognese we had a vegetarian pasta with lots of freshly ground Parmesan instead.

Bowthruster Battery Bank
Bowthruster battery compartment filled The forward compartment with the bowthruster batteries filled with supplies (towels, toilet paper and other light stuff). As is typical on a boat, I'm using all the nooks and crannies for storage but on this boat I'm keeping an Excel sheet with the details so that I don't forget where stuff is.

Anchored in Marigot, St. Martin
French bridge is broken The story is that electrical works caused their problem and that the special components needed to be shipped in and are taking their time. Be that as it may, it has been 2 weeks and the bridge is still out of action.
