SDA100 Cat Island, Dolphin and Shower Pump Repair
In this episode of Sailing Dark Angel, the weather chases us out of beautiful Conception Island. We sail up to Cat Island, where we're greeted by a beautiful dolphin. That's where we take advantage of over a week of bad weather by fixing our Shurflo Blaster II shower drain pump. This is not a good place to be in a west wind.
