... on a dirty filter. We emptied the second reserve tank, started the engine, and went on our way to Parikia. The sea was much calmer than the night before and the engine worked reliably all the way. Somewhen in the process, G had woken up and I had brought him up to speed. He still thought that we could have repaired the filter. I am sure we could have but I was glad we had not. Several people on land now knew of our situation and Michaelis, who knew the boat the ...

We have been taking sea sickness tablets just in case and I think in this instance ...
