Some good news, and some bad news this morning. The good news is that it looks as thought the tropical storm that is forming in the Atlantic is heading directly north, so will probably miss us. The bad news is that despite a good solid day of fault finding, we have not been able to work out the problem with our Raymarine SR100 Sirius Satellite Weather Forecasting system on the boat.
At the beginning of the trip, we noticed that one of the buttons on the Raymarine E120 Display on the boat was not working, so we did a factory reset on the unit to see if that helped. It didn’t, and in the process it seems to have caused the unit to stop showing us the weather updates. We have called Raymarine and Sirius, but nothing that has been suggested is helping. Looks as though we will have to just make do with the satellite radio instead.
In the afternoon Ellie and I went for a wander on the beach behind the marina.
