First, Martin came home for a visit the first two weeks of June. It was absolutely lovely having him home even though I felt like we were in fast forward the entire time trying to fit everything in on our list of "to do's". Other than not getting two (very important) filters for our engines, I think Martin was able to pull in boat parts from all over the country to take back with him to join AMARA back in Indonesia.
Upon his return, it also meant a change in crew. Sue, David, John and Tamrika took off in different directions in Indonesia and our new crew stepped on board.

Check back in a few days and I will get some more pictures of their dive adventures and the story of our ripped spinnaker. Oh the tales one can tell when it comes to figuring out a way to get it repaired while in Indonesia. Leave it to Martin, and a lot of effort on his part, in getting it repaired. More on that later...
