Setting out yet again

When I say ‘we bought a new fridge’ landlubbers think we got a new box and put it into its place. On a boat things work differently: we had to get out the old tubes and evaporator, drill new holes into the stainless fridge compartment, install the compressor, evaporator and install the tubes. After that we bent some plexiglass and screwed it in to keep things from sliding under the evaporator.

After 3 days of hectic working we managed to get Pitufa ready to set out again with today’s weather window: two days of NE, then N and NW winds should blow us to the Tuamotus!
