Replaced the Boat Prop Finally
Today we replaced the prop from a 4 blade Max prop to a 3 blade in hope that our issues or odd noises will be resolved. We also took the time to scrub the bottom and replace the zincs on the drive shaft. It took all day but we where able to get it done and not have to pay additional fees for leaving Dragonbane on land over night.
Hopefully if the weather is in our favor we will set sail tomorrow for the “DR” aka Dominican Republic. It is about 160 nautical miles from our current location at the ship yard in Turks and Caicos. I will try and post my sailing progress as we go via SSB radio and let you all know how it is going out in the ocean. Also I found out that the hump back whales are in birthing season down here and we should be seeing a lot of them as we go. I will try and get some pictures if we do.
