‘Cygnet’ Etap 37 Gold Coast to Adelaide May 2019

After finding water in the fuel at the Gold Coast, we needed to drain off about a litre from the tank and bleed the system and renew all filters. Next we decided to replace the impeller. Unfortunately 3 of the 6 screws broke on undoing requiring us to drill out and replace with bolts. With a successful fix, we left the following day. Trip to Sydney with new owner Tom and friend Dennis started off in stormy weather but once we cleared Pt Danger, it just got better an better. However a massive front developed in Bass Strait and meant 2 1/2 days holed up in Bermagui until it passed. The rest of the trip was without incident but very very cold. Tom and his son met us and said the last 40 miles into Adelaide.
