We are feeling far more positive today...the final coat of paint has gone on the coach roof (my hand is aching from 2 days of stippling non-slip paint!) and the generator is working (hooray, back to normal cooking on more than one burner at a time!).
On Monday we motored around to the marina in the next bay, Le Phare Bleu, to fill up with water and to enlist further help from Mike of Palm Tree Marine. After a compression test he established that we have an injector problem. The offending injector has been cleaned and we have power. It really needs replacing but that requires specialist tools for the installation that are not available anywhere in the Caribbean. We are keeping our fingers crossed that Nic can keep it going until we get up to the States next year.
