Today was another day in the marina which had me busy aboard all day but in the end I feel I had little to show for it. It started early, with slow-cooking a curry which filled the boat with savoury smells all day and made me feel hungry all the time. Then I worked on some stainless during a period of overcast skies, plus waiting for the fridge to thaw out. I'd turned off the fridge in the early morning and by noon the ice surrounding the evaporator plate had hardly thawed so I got out the travel hair drier which Sascha and Sandra had brought along and put it to good use in accelerating the thawing process. The added heat and judicious use of my hands to scrape away loose ice made short shrift of the ice and soon I'd replaced all the food into the clean refrigerator. I'd used the opportunity to put some white electrical tape around some of the bigger cracks in the fridge interior in the hopes that this would make it more efficient.
I began work on the forward solar panels, which had gone quite cloudy over time; but some rain and the subsequent sunset changed those plans and I'll have to do that tomorrow. Dinner was some rice and a portion of the slow-cooked curry which was very spicy but also very tasty.
