Passage to Chile

We have recently arrived in Iquique, Chile after an eleven-day passage from Callao, Peru. Some of the adventures and mis-adventures along the way are reflected in our recent blog post at: Passage to Chile

Good going Michael! Another great accounting of what promises to be a very interesting voyage.

Now if only Edi could put a decent meal together you'd be set!

Seq - I seriously want to be you when I grow up. Great write up! And great use of an historical stitching awl. Climbing and sailing have so much in common.

I'm wondering what was that line you caught on the way there? Was it to a net or a fishing line?
Hows your Prop? (that sounds dirty)

The line was polyprop about 6mm and attached to it every 10m or so was a monofiliment with a hook baited with clumps of plastic roe. Also every 50m or so there was an 8 to 10cm float. I don't know how long the line was, but I would think they would put out many hundreds of metres at a time. We caught a bight of it and the diver told us it was tightly wrapped around the screw. The diver cost P25,000 about CA$53 or US$54.

The screw is healthy and yesterday we motored alongside to our first marina since March.

I need to revisit the idea of a line cutter on our shaft.
