Not so fast...

We tried to leave, we really wanted to go.  Sad as we were to leave Cape Town, IT WAS TIME.  We cleared out and went to sea.  As the waves grew the water level in the bilge rose.  Ginger said "What Now?!" Peter said "It's got to be the rudder again."  He was right, Marcy wasn't as ready to leave Cape Town as we were.  One more trip to the yard was in order. Water was pouring in the top of the lower rudder bearing as before.  So, back to the yard, fabricate a lower bearing and then we'll be on our way.  We hope the delay will be no longer than a week. As we write this Marcy is sitting on the concrete at RCYC again, having survived another crane lift. We are at the bar recovering....

Wish we were in South Africa with that problem.
