Well, we are now back in Brest, back on Nimrod. The sun is now shining and it is great to be back on board. The engineer arrived promptly at 1430 to look at the engine. They fairly quickly summised that “le moteur est interrompue”. Otherwise known as broken in as much that they don’t know what has caused it.
We will be towed round to the other marina in Brest on Thursday morning so that they can lift the engine out and do the appropriate diagnostics. We will know more then but we always knew that they needed to do this.
Fingers crossed. We have been to the local Carrefour and stocked up on food so about to have fresh prawns and baguette as a starter followed by roast pork. The wine is already open so life isn’t that bad!
