Day 1, Monday, 8th July - Arthur receiving some TLC in Connaught Harbour
Monday, July 8th, 2013..."Arthur" in Connaught Harbour receiving some TLC from Eamon Egan and Fergal Kerney prior to setting off on our annual Coastal Cruise of the south-west coast of Ireland. Given our encounter with a nasty wind against tide in dense fog at Kerry Head last year a Garmin Radar 18 HD is being installed. And a new chartplotter, Garmin 750S, is replacing our old trusty Garmin 276c.
The weather is currently 'super'...very low winds, and we are keen to get started. But we must cool our heels until Eamon and Fergal have completed their work on "Arthur". It looks like we will not be able to set-off until Tuesday. But, better to be safe than sorry!
