Hibernating on a Sailboat over winter S3 E3

Yes, it gets cold and wet even in Greece! Not as bad as the UK. It has rarely dropped into single figures Celcius but even so - with the high winds and the rain - doing jobs on the boat has not been high on my 'things to do today' list.

However the weather is improving and it looks like the strong winds are past for a while. This week I play detective looking for that elusive water leak in our starboard fresh water tank. While I have the boards up it seems like a perfect time to strip them clean and seal to give a nice fresh feeling to the saloon.

A quick side trip to empty the rain from the dingy and - off camera - I fixed Svetlana's electric toilet (again). I say off camera because I can't imagine a worse job and the language was unprintable. Just imagine it is there at the end of the episode if you must.
