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.
