WSW 3. Going backwards! Coastal Traffic. Right at that moment the spring line that used to be attached between the two vessels fouled his prop and his boat drifted to the shore. The keel wedge itself between some large boulders.
Peter dived into the water to asses the situation. He quickly saw that there was a clear way out if we could tow the boat to the stern. Using the longest shoreline he fastened both end to his two stern cleats and tied a coloured piece of string around the middle. Peter briefed me on the two way radio and I tied a line to each of my stern cleats as well. I joined both lines by tying a large eight knot.
Vincent, our lineman, delivered the middle of Peter's line with the dinghy and I completed the four point tow with a sheet bend.
I carefully motored in the direction that Peter had suggested. Mirjam reported that their vessel simply slid out into deeper water. We had successfully executed a stern-to-stern tow without any damage to either vessel!
With both vessels together, I re-anchored at the head of the bay and we dove into the water. The line around Peter's propeller was quickly dispensed once it met with Martin's sailing knife. The entire manoeuver succeeded because we all worked well together.
That evening we celebrated by smoking a few expensive small cigars while we enjoyed a nice dinner. It was our last night in a bay so Ruth and I decided to sleep on deck. You have to love the climate in Greece, it is the perfect temperature to enjoy a starry sky. Back to Kalamaki August 26 Via Aegina we returned to Kalamaki where we arrived on August 26 at a quarter past nine in the morning.
We had left Aegina town just before dawn.
It was our third and last sunrise while on the way. During the transit we cleaned the decks. Although our charter allowed us to return the vessel without cleaning, it was a matter of pride to arrive with a sparkling white boat. The check out was extremely efficient.
In the span of an hour a diver checked the hull, someone checked all the sailing equipment, they did the complete inventory, a Raytheon engineer showed up to fix the Navtex a broken connector and someone showed up to start changing oil and filters on the generator and engine.
It all worked like clock work. Both Peter and I got our deposit back.
The yacht charter company decided to pay me an additional EURO to cover a part of the expenses and downloads that I had made for the vessel during the eight weeks. I did feel I had been treated very fairly. It had been a fantastic trip. We learned a lot of Greek history. We swam in beautiful bays and walked in picturesque villages.
More importantly, we learned to sail a brand new 50 foot boat as a family.
You should have seen us arrive in Kalimaki with Vincent handling the stern lines and Martin securing the mooring line to the bow as we docked the boat without touching the quay or other vessels.
At twelve and thirteen, our sons had better boat handling skills than most adults.
The four of us had mastered sailing and it was time to move on to another challenge. At home there was a square foot driveway that needed paving. Study your old logs to see what information you usually record and how much room you need for it. You can do this simply enough using any word processor.
It is sturdy and does not tear easily; it also holds up well for spiral binding. Inkjet paper is also available, but test first to ensure your ink jet printing itself will not smear when wet.
A fine-point permanent marker like a Sharpie works well on this paper. This paper is thick enough to write on both sides without bleed-through, so you may want to offset your printing a little to the outer margin opposite the spiral binding when you print each side. Again, test to ensure the toner will not smear on the page when damp—not usually a problem with laser printers.
