We had almost 50 miles to do today, destination Mässkär, which was quite close to Jakobstad or Pietersaari, where we'd spent a few days up until 26th June. Mässkär boasts a symbol in the harbour guide, denoting the fact that it is a 'favourite harbour’, so it should be nice. Given the distance to cover and the lack of toilets and showers on Maakalla, we were off early and did our ablutions en route, perfectly feasible in the calm conditions we were ...

Needless to say we were less than keen on doing very much so ...

... he said that with saildrives when the clutch goes, it goes totally, leaving you with no effective propulsion at all. Something else to worry about now! Anyway, we concluded with the straw-clutching thought that perhaps the offending piece of line or whatever had somehow worked its’ way off the prop in the last couple of miles, when we wouldn’t have noticed any effect as we were going slowly anyway.

... and an ice cream – all accomplished successfully and our watches were equally well done so with that, we returned to the boat to await the arrival of our diver.

At 6 o’clock sharp, a workmanlike boat appeared and was expertly placed into an adjacent mooring bay. Keijo was a no-nonsense but pleasant sort of chap and seemed and was, very experienced and competent. I balked at the price he wanted ...
