The new batteries were delivered this morning (June 28) and installed this afternoon. They weighed a tonne. Each of the 4 domestic batteries weighed 35kg each and the engine battery around 25kg. However, all now in place and working so we are very happy.
We have completed most of our chores, including a last minute shop for fresh produce so that we can leave for Corfu late tomorrow morning after we have settled our bill. Our plan is to go directly to Erikoussa just north of Corfu island, which should take us around 30 hours. However, we go along the coast of Italy for quite a time so if there are any unforeseen problems, we can can divert into Brindisi or Otranto. The storms have finally abated so we should have the wind behind us with a moderate swell. Fingers crossed!
