finished the repaint and antifoul on Saturday.  Early start and got hree coats of interprotect, three coats of war paint on by the time racing started, fcuking knackered today.

Friday helped haul a mussel farm out of the Tamaki - it was sinking quick.  

Also Friday, caught up with Tony from Eastern Covers and nailed down the colour for the new sail cover and spray dodger.

Also completed fitting the 120w solar panel. 10A MPPT regulator feeding the full battery bank.  Interesting watching it change settings as the batteries charge and it diverts to the load.  Facing south on the hardstand at the moment so I'll be interested ot see what the panel puts out when its at a better sun angle.

Expensive weekend and we never even got on the water.IMG_20210313_133059_1.thumb.jpg.ec9223613a8f74ac6feda16fc95e7779.jpg

Current on board debate: how big does a rock have to be before it is an island.

Is it oceanic or continental in origin ?

Big enuff 4 one inhabitant and able to support that one i.e. arable, & provide shelter or a site where shelter could be built.

Close to an ice cream shop. After all othef things - is life really possible without icecream

To me a rock is a ROCK and an island is an ISLAND if it has dirty, sand and vegetation on it.

Not hard to define.

 

Ok some rocks might have  a tree or two on it but it wouldn't have a beach.

So an island has to be able to sustain human life, but there are no explanations offered on what exactly that means. I mean, given the right technology, human life can be sustained on the friggin moon.
