Well here it is Tuesday, and after nearly a week we have located the welder! Or rather we cornered him at lunch! Part dropped off with it due done this afternoon. Sitting down by the beach watching the waves rolling in on a west wind. So likely depart from Bimini on Thursday morning.
On a lighter note, the crew of SV Delos is in Key West and was spotted visiting West Marine (and Chris wasn’t there!).
So cruising, fixing your boat at far away places after chasing the parts down!
