After Poros, we spent a night at anchor on the south east coast of N. Salamis (north winds) then 3 nights in a marina in Athens, down to N. Aigina (strong southerlies), now over in Palaia Epidhavros (northerlies)...where we will spend a few days normally....
As we had a RDV with the Spectra watermaker technician in Athens, we needed to enter a marina (unfortunate, but necessary). Alimos Marina, Kalamaki, is huge, over 900 berths, with many yacht charter companies....pretty scruffy, drab surroundings. However, the frequent buses and trams stop just outside, convenient.
Panagiotis Rousis of Yacht Service, who is the efficient local Spectra agent, arrived not long after our arrival, checked over our watermaker in detail as programmed. We recently acquired a new membrane, a new 'casing' for the membrane, and are delighted to say that all is working as it should be...producing good quality water with the correct quantity.
During our short visit, we took advantage also to change the filter, add new oil, new gas to the freezer system. Necessary from time to time...maintenance!
Unfortunately, I could not find a rapid solution for my computer's flickering screen... a new cable has been ordered....we will therefore return in a couple of weeks. Thankfully, working, but I must be careful with the screen. But next time, we will try to anchor off Gylfada if winds are suitable.
'Pacific Pearl' was absolutely sparkling clean when we left the marina...but the following day after strong southerlies and dirty rain, she was covered in thick orange sand...grrrrrr! Now we need a decent storm with clean rain....!
