Oh what a day!…
We\’ve had the following issues:
Our \”Navigate Mode\” on our auto pilot stopped working. With Mike\’s help, I think? I\’ve hacked and fixed it.
Our 24 Volt Alternators (which were just rebuilt) do not appear to be charging the batteries….ummmm
Our water maker seems to have over flowed into the bilge when the tanks were full instead of coming out the air vent as it usually does….investigating
Good news is that our generator with battery chargers and the solar is picking up the slack….\”as designed\”.
Other minor misc. stuff.

Last night, I was brushing my teeth and Nikki (who was asleep), screamed! We\’ve a RAT! The only open port was our stateroom hatch. Fortunately, (story in the blog to come), I was able to capture him/her in a bucket and out the port light he/she went. About 8\” long plus tail!…. As they can swim, I\’m sure it self rescued and climbed up the dock poles awaiting the next unsuspecting \”yachtie\”. Yet another in a long line of \”sea stories\”….:-)

KIT,
Scott and Nikki
Either Spanish Cay or Green Turtle Cay tomorrow….then Hope Town where we should have some internet.

PS: These are being sent in a group of 4….We\’re working on some web issues.
