Today I walked up to the Ranger Station and obtained a permit to enter Anan wildlife observatory.  All very formal.  Then I went down to the hardware store to get a can of bear (deterrent) spray, its expensive stuff and I almost didn’t buy it – but then I thought, what if?  The spray only lasts for four seconds so I reckon every second counts if you have to use it.

Final grocery shopping carried out this afternoon and just a case of beer outstanding to complete the restock.  I should not need much now before I get to Victoria.

The modifications to autopilot are complete, plus all the other little jobs.  The travel lift is booked for the morning and I am looking forward to getting back on the water and doing some sea trials to check everything out, hopefully no leaks.  It will be interesting to see how the autopilot works on the wind vane trim tab now that I have a proper fitting in place.

I will make a quick visit to Rayme’s bar and then have an early night ready for tomorrow.
