After putting in a full day at the office, I had to get the boat underway and do the 20+ mile trip downwind to Diamond Cay on Jost van Dyke. I'd received some e-mails from Warren about his CO detector going off during the night, most likely triggered by some outgassing of the batteries during charging. This means that, despite careful computation and monitoring while I was aboard, we had set the values too high. As Warren didn't have a PC along I had to bring mine along in order to run the software to set the values. I'd wanted to relocate anyway, but the conditions weren't really nice with heavy overcast and lots of rain, but it was only a couple of hours sail. I hope that Diamond Cay has good internet connectivity, as tomorrow is an important day at "the office".
I joined the crowds at the B-Line bar on Little Jost for happy hour and made a burger dinner aboard after returning from the bar and re-setting the Victron on Aria.

Making bread on Zanshin Preparing for another bread baking session. The water has a touch of sugar in it, and I'm about to stir in some yeast from the plastic bin.

Incorrect depth sounding The chartplotter shows 66 feet, but just before I took this shot I had 11 feet (under the keel, so call it 20 feet total) which is certainly not on the chart and caused my pulse to go up while I tried to decide what to do - I was under sail going downwind, so slowing down isn't that easy.

Attentive pet at the B-Line One of the boats at anchor had this adorable dog aboard, and brought her into the B-Line bar.
