Where is that oil going?
As you could see from the pics I posted yesterday, we have our boat secured to one of the docks at Port Louis Marina. We’ll remain here, along with many of our friends, for the duration of carnival. Festivities are in full swing as evidenced by the loud music which has been pumping non-stop throughout the night. Fortunately, both Rebecca and I are sound sleepers and the music doesn’t bother us. Boaters who are not such sound sleepers often leave the marina during this time, a good thing for us!
While we’ll be off with some other cruisers tonight watching the pan band competition at the national stadium, we have some boat chores slated for today. The biggest one on my list is cleaning the engine room. We’ve noted a fairly substantial oil leak and my first step in diagnosing the problem is cleaning the area so that I can see where the oil is leaking from. I suspect that it’s going to be a hot, sweaty, dirty task. In other words, a typical boat job!
