A powerful earthquake in Chile meant a bit of worry for us. Fortunately, the tsunami waves generated had minimal effect here.
Regarding the ship, there is very little one person can do in such a situation. Still, I accepted the offer of a friend to drive me to the ship in the evening after I got off from work.
One thing I had done on Saturday, was to take the old spring line and wrap it around an unused bollard. I was thinking that it might help a little in terms of the windy conditions (keeping in mind what happened with the ex-Superferry barge). Once I was at the ship, I ended up taking up some of the slack in the line and putting an additional wrap around the bollard. A very small thing, but it made me feel slightly better about the entire situation.
Since I was there, I decided to check on the aft peak.
It looked like there was less water, but it was really hard to tell due to the poor lighting. Note to self: See what can be done about the work lights. I think it’s okay, but I’ll check again on Saturday.
I like the juxtaposition of the cool blue of the evening sky with the warmth of the tween deck lights:
Usually, it’s the other way around with the daylight being brighter and warm.
Before I locked up and left, I asked the old crew to look after the ship.
