Yesterday’s rainy weather continued today, broken up by periods of sunshine.

rain on deck

I took the opportunity to walk around the ship to check if the scuppers were doing their job and to look for areas where the rain was leaking down on to the tween deck.

A porthole in my cabin that doesn’t shut properly:

One task I had planned for today was to look around on the decks for rivet heads that have popped off. I found one and removed another that was ready to fall off.

I wanted to get some pictures of the Haixun 31 while she was at the pier, but was told by a guard that photography wasn’t allowed.

I did manage to get this one of her name and rat guards:

Naughty me!

Spoke briefly with Paul, who was on the pilot boat:
