Today was departure day for Rob and Nat; we'd made quite good time on crossing from the BVI to St. Martin and arrived just after 8am, anchoring next to Bernd and Carmen outside of Marigot for a bit while Nat and Rob finished packing their things and did some cleaning up of the cabin. Instead of a long and wet dinghy ride to the airport they opted for a short and comfortable cab ride and I waved them off - glad that I didn't have a set of long flights in overfilled aircraft and uncomfortable seats ahead of me. I returned to the boat and proceed with some of the standard boating tasks - laundry, a bit of cleaning in preparation for Wolfgang, making water and resting up after the overnight passage.

Water filter replacement The blue and white water prefilters clog up quite often, especially in silty or dirty waters, so this is a frequent task mine - replacing the filters.
