Umbrella Drinks All The Time

NOT!  We are thoroughly enjoying our new life afloat.  However, I don't want to give the wrong impression that it's paradise 100% of the time.  It's not.  There are some tough, frustrating times.  For instance, boat maintenance is constant.  The sea and conditions are brutal on equipment and gear EVERYTHING.  Just because you maintenance/repair/fix something, doesn't mean it will stay that way.  Nope.  It's ongoing.  This can be frustrating to the point of maddening at times! 
The latest challenge is our watermaker.  The last few times Tom has gone to make water, he has struggled to get it to kick on and make water.  Yesterday there was NO kicking!  Argh!  Luckily here in Antigua there is a company that specializes in all things watermakers.
So, looks like we may be extending our stay here in Antigua until we can get the watermaker making ROH2O again.  Of course it goes without saying.....but I will anyway....we know there are worse places to be stuck.
