Saturday was Scott's birthday. I had hoped we could spend the day sipping rum drinks beside the pool at the local beach club, but Scott elected to sleep late and spend most of the day playing computer games and surfing the internet. We did manage to get out of the boat after if got dark and took a nice walk over the hill to Santa Cruz, where we ate beef fajitas in an unremarkable restaurant by the beach and listened to the music from a dance concert that was happening nearby. On the way back, we stopped in a cafe near the marina and had some celebratory dessert.
I spent the entire weekend sewing window screens. We now have a screen for one of the big side windows and I am working on the other one so that we can get some cross ventilation going when we aren't at a dock where we can run the giant fan. Of course, to get airflow, we have to take down the sun screen. It's a trade off. Scott made a lot of progress with installing the new chart plotter on Sunday. He spent a lot of time splicing together incompatible cables and figuring out how to translate the signal from one manufacturer to that of another so that the chart plotter would interface with the GPS and (as yet non-functional) autopilot. The autopilot is a project for a future date.
