Mar 12 - Strong winds

The winds were too high to go fishing, so most of my day was spent working in the engine room. The Racor fuel filter, the Perkins primary filter, and the oil and oil filter were all changed and the engine had to be bled before starting. The coolant and transmission fluid levels were checked, and the watermaker was run as well. In the late afternoon, Ahmed and Hashim stopped by in their small fiberglass dinghy, with their 2 HP motor working hard against the wind and waves. Two nicer guys would be hard to find, and in spite of the language barrier, we had a really enjoyable visit.
