Panama just another day

April 23, 2011

Panama Update: just another day around the boat with nothing but ocean in all directions… all day. The seas are better today so lets take a little walk around… the first people I run into…

Chris goes over a log of waypoints with Lindsay whose been helping type them up. One deck below is a door…

…lets go in and see what we find…

…wow thats a big first step…and a lot of dried sea salt on my sneakers. Down that treacherous set of stairs and you’re hit by the heat and noise, we’re in Frank and Neal’s world down here…can you “find Frank” in this shot?…

He blends right in…there’s everything down here, all super clean and tidy. Lets start with the motors that move this girl…

this is the port engine…

and the spinning shaft thats turns our props. There are water makers…

I’ve become all to familiar with these units from the Outpost. Diesel storage with clear tubes so we can see how much is left in each tank. Here is the port tank and measuring tube…

…full to the brim…and the startboard…

…down to a quarter or so. Right in the stern is the hydraulic atuo pilot steering bar…

you’ve got to really squeeze through some small doors to get around down here…

Sorry about the photo Neal… this area reminds me a bit of the movie Aliens…can’t you just see something uncurling from all these tubes, cables and wires…

…on second thought I don’t think I’ll go down this halway…

Lets get back to all the cool stuff like fuel centrifuges…

and Frank making and replacing some high pressure hoses…

These guys are amazing, they’re down here all day making sure the Pacific Provider and her parts keep running smoothly. From what I can tell they’re well supplied, can problem solve and fix just about anything…and never get sick,they don’t have the option. I feel really lucky that they’re aboard. They don’t wear shirts down here because its HOT, how hot? Neal shows me his laser temperature gauge…shine it on something and the display shows the temp…

…thats right its 122 degrees. I was a little concerned so we lasered Frank to see if he was overheating…

98.6 is normal body temp so Frank is actually cold down here…they make em tough on the Jersey Shore.

On the other side of the ship in the tackle room is “Irongut-Morel”, the motion sickness doesn’t bother him at all, he actually can sit, splice, spool the lines and work on little things all day in the rocking without issue…

Good work Pierre!

Arrrgh Mateys, another day at sea comes to an end.
Arre location at 7:15 tonight be…
