Captain Cook!? - Free Range Sailing Ep 101
Chef Troy, yep. The blue moon just rose. I'm. Like a mining, at the moment yeah, it looks like it down there yeah it is a little bit. These. Days. Well. We set out the sale from Fitzroy reef back to Kapil's and. We're expecting some wind but it, died out midday, so, we've stopped here. So. We've, stopped here we're at West re reef at the moment no, speed fishing here it's, a closed area but, we're, gonna go and launch the dinghy we'll, go for a bit of a drift dive and we'll see what's what's, happening in the channel. But. It. The. Show. Chef. Troy. Yep. The blue moon just rose. Looks. Like game with a lot of potatoes, he. Looks like the territory. Yeah, cool. Madam what, we're having tonight. I've. Got that ghee my dry roasted, some. Cumin, first and. Then I, just. Flashed off some, turmeric and about two, tablespoons of ghee and. Now I'm. Just shallow. Frying these potatoes, till they're tender maybe a little bit crunchy then. I'm going to stir through these chickpeas. Maybe. Dig, up some masa potato, I say, potato. And. Then we'll, top it off with some tomatoes. And yogurt, and serve, it up with some. What's. This quinoa, what. Do you think. All. Right so there's the chickpeas they just went in and. What I didn't treat you before, is. Just, before I put in the tomatoes, I'm gonna put in some cardamom, and. Grading some nutmeg, I, might. Even put some sooner we got me. So. This will be a bit of a Swedish sort, of dish sweet, ish, not Swedish. So nutmeg, cinnamon, little. Cardamom we'll. Throw some tomatoes at, it and. We'll let it stew for a little while and. Then top it off with some yogurt and I'll serve it up and then. Hopefully the window way back there we can say along. Dinner. Is ready. Everybody. I. Am. I decided against, tomato in the end Pascal I just. Thought we'd have a creamy curry YUM, that's great, there's a pass the pesky, test yep. Sure. Does, you're. Just saying that so I'll cook more often. Unfortunately. I'm, gonna get up the mast.
We're. Planning on going for a bit of a night sail tonight. So, I was just checking the nav lights and of course you can only really see if you if you're sailing lights going in the dark to. Discover. But it's not on it's, dark so. I'm gonna go up the last, it's. Been playing up a little bit lately and I don't know whether it's a corroded contact, or an LED that's going out we're just going to put a brand, new in there. Well, this. Is a um an, old-timey, halogen. Light up there so. I think. What it was was there's a bit of corrosion on these contacts. So. I can get. Some wet and dry, will. Clean all that up I'll clean all my greasy. Fingerprints, off this glass with some methylated, spirits and we'll keep it as a spear the, LED, I put up there will will mean that we, we. Um. We. Probably won't use quite as. Many. Amps, to run our navigation, like when we're sailing yeah. The. Wind arrived a few hours later and we were underway on a fast paced beam run under, the light of the moon. By. Dawn the wind had increased to 25, knots. We, were making such good speed we decided, on a brief return to civilization. To get a few chores done. This. Is a volcanic, plug it, was formed when lava hardened, within an ancient volcanic vent when. The surrounding rock eroded away, it was left behind just, like it was turned out of a mold. All. Right well we. Made it to the capital Bay Marina we're, not really marina people as you know but it, is good to come in and. Do. Some laundry that's, normally the main thing we like to do and I've got three, lots of sheets here to wash so. I'm going to be pretty busy for the next couple of hours let's. Hope I get it all done. One. Thing we also like to clean as well as our. Cushion. Covers these, things, that we made when we left Fremantle, there they're, still hanging in there they're just Navy. Canvas. They. Get quite salty because we sit on them stool I computer, work and to eat our meals. Don't. You wash them again. I'm. A little bit out of luck, there's, for washing machines of this marina and there's not a single one free well. I might not have had much of a wind but it looks like you've had a win. Well. A little. Bit the. Beauty box. I'm. Using, last, time we did. Public glass we did the stitching glue method this time using the glue and glue method so I've just made that little box hot glued it together and. Now I'm going to. Resin. It together so we've. Got the. Last of the epoxy we written Boyd a bunch of talcum powder it's. Thick enough and. We'll. See here we go but everything's sort of everywhere some. Morning. I'm like a morning at the moment yeah, looks like there's. A little bit, we're. Running against the clock because we want to use the good weather to go out to the roof we. Want to use the good weather we've. Pulled in to Rosalind, Bay Marina and it's a really great marina but it's incredibly social so. We. Keep meaning to get jobs done there's, really friendly people here that's it's actually making, it quite difficult the. Friendly people of your phone. We. Just want to spend time with them we've. Been invited for a nice dinner tonight. Yeah. So we're gonna have dinner at the water line restaurant. Right. At the end of Marina. A real. Highlight of our live aboard life is to, be able to swap stories experiences. And information with, other like-minded cruises. Would, you think pesco very excited, Simonetta snake in a long time, what did we go I feel. It's a seasonal. Vegetables, and new, potatoes and I should be playing with my cutlery comes up and get mad. As. The tender cycle, ever had. Mumbling. That's, a good call. It's. Delicious. What's, the story they pesco it's Chris to the rescue. Yeah. We've we. Couldn't get the washing done at the marina, so. We. Found one of our fans, who. Happens to be a one-eyed. Your. Poon supporter, definitely onion yeah absolutely, unashamedly. Coastal, that's my business in my. This. Is this is that little redneck retreating you welcome, here anytime if. You come back through will. Do you won't be a laundry. All. Right so we're gonna bang on some washing, an image is going to go and have a look around new plan they've even offered, to do it for us and drop it around tomorrow which is quite, outrageous. Chris, and his wife Debbie were the perfect hosts, and kept us entertained with, a stream of stories, about their lives in America and now in your poon. One. Of the places they took us to was wreck point this, spot gets its name from the ship Selena that was found washed up here cruelest but still with its cargo of cedar timber, after oak missing on its maiden voyage from Brisbane to Sydney. Over, the 15 months she was missing it is suspected that the Selena drifted, around on the currents of the Tasman Sea probably. Southing all the way to the Victoria coastline before. Drifting eastwards, towards New Zealand and then north to her final resting place in your poon a.
Salvage. Attempt of the Selena of the beach in 1848, was unfortunately. Unsuccessful. This. Is the stunning public, infinity, pool in your poem entry. Is free all year round. Thirty-two. Bars of chocolate. Chocolate. Was unspecial when I was doing her order. Online. Which. Is pretty, amazing, it's a provisioning. Made easy now with the joys of online, shopping and. They. Delivered, it to the marina and even the lady was so lovely and kind she brought, the boxes, all the way down to our boy so it, was probably, the easiest provisioning. I've ever done on morale and it, was good because it was a big order and we ordered lots of things so we don't have to go and get essentials, when we pull in to ports along the way. So, you build a box what's. The box form I thought, we just. Don't. Have enough storage on you so I'll just build another box yeah. No. Well um we'll pop this over the the anchor winch next, time bring some some. Heavy water and. I might stop some of the water going down in the anchor Locker and splashing, around the machinery space and stuff like that what. About the butt plug. The. Butt plug people, loved it when I caught a butt plug good night so, the, holes not the right size like we've been large that. Just. Like the the winch manufacturers, wanted yeah we want to try and keep a small hole a year ago but, we've been large dat and it's opened up a few other. What. Do you call it, options. Open. Up a few other options and we'll cover that you know we're about to do some anchoring. Demonstrations. And stuff like that so we'll look at that but yeah. Keeping water out the boats become harder so this little box I'm putting over and if it works fine then, I'll sand, it paint it because it is epoxy, so. UV, will in. Time break down and support so it will paint it eventually but. I want to give it a bit of a trial run before I invest too much more time and effort into it because, to. Be honest it hasn't really taken that much time and effort has it most the times involved, is waiting for the epoxy to dry. We. Hope you enjoyed this week's episode of free-range sailing, please.
