Hooray, the cherry blossom is out!
I do lots of boat stuff. The pipe that runs from the cockpit sump up to pump is blocked. I have spent many frustrating hours trying to unblock it with absolutely no success. The situation is not good as when the boat cover is off, rain gathers in the cockpit and generally sloshes about. This does not feel very seamanlike, you know having water sloshing around the cockpit.
I can now use the hand pump that I carry on the boat anyway.
Time for a food break! All from the excellent restaurant across the road. https://www.google.com/maps/place/割烹+ハイウェイemail@example.com,127.755805,3a,75y,90t/data=!3m8!1e2!3m6!1sAF1QipO7m_80hrlIdDgFu9Y6lq8iURVwU4gQTuVmQUlb!2e10!3e12!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipO7m_80hrlIdDgFu9Y6lq8iURVwU4gQTuVmQUlb%3Dw203-h299-k-no!7i1275!8i1884!4m7!3m6!1s0x34e5132df6599711:0xb46898b3678ef2d5!8m2!3d26.289005!4d127.755805!14m1!1BCgIYIQ
On the theme of proximity, it has been a tough week. The incredible Lawson combini that is next to my apartment has been closed for refurbishment. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Lawsonfirstname.lastname@example.org,127.7550412,19z/data=!4m12!1m6!3m5!1s0x34e5132df6599711:0xb46898b3678ef2d5!2z5Ymy54O5IOODj-OCpOOCpuOCp-OCpA!8m2!3d26.289005!4d127.755805!3m4!1s0x34e51331fe6fb323:0x575ab70dbdf3e67a!8m2!3d26.2902121!4d127.7555557
Hooray, it reopened today. It is better than ever! You can get everything you want here 24/7. It is now brand new and shiny with lots of new stuff. It wonderful to have great restaurants and a place to get a USB cable at 3:00am, only 2 minutes walk away. I never want to live in the country again.
I replace the leather on the gaff jaws – traditional in the Spring. I use this activity as an excuse to buy a new battery screwdriver.
Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing!! ~Rachel
