A small victory

My cockpit chart plotter stopped working leaving Singapore. When I came into Pangkor my cockpit depth gauge succumbed to lightening. I had depth at the chart table but not the cockpit. Not great. The chart plotter was acting like it was not getting power. But the gauge said it was. $900 repair +$400 shipping. Decided to take the wires apart. Sure thing, one was loose. Voila!

Quote of the day

From the New York Times 

 "The global financial destruction that will happen under President Trump has already begun." That was a headline in London's Independent newspaper on Nov. 9, 2016. Those whom the gods will mock, first they make pompous economic forecasters."

Malaysian Navy Racers

Next to Reboot are four racing sailboats. Built in Malaysia they are crewed by members of the Malaysian Navy. They were out for a photo shoot today and I snuck a picture.

Rain

Sitting in the cockpit in a light rain. I am protected by a temporary cover while my new storm hood is under construction. The sun is setting and there is a gentle breeze. That helps keep the mosquitoes away. XO was cuddling for a bit but is now sitting on the opposite side with his forepaws tucked under his body. A nice night.
