My new crew surprised me with a great dinner that Morten cooked with his brought ingredients. After that in the sun on deck we did the security briefing. Now everyone knows where all the fire extinguishers are and all life wests adapted. So now we are ready to set sail tomorrow.
Next thing that is broken! I'm so sad! This rod Martin prepared for my trip organizing everything that I need to fish in the lakes.
