Many Thx!

Dear Girls and Boys
I'm back in PL. In a few days I'll try to write some about my adventures in Patagonia and I'll attach more pictures.

Andre, I was flying Red Ensign as the boat was still registered in UK. But I had Polish Ensign as an evidence of polish crew on deck

All the best and Thank You all for all what You wrote on this forum. And special thanks to Biga for keeping all of You updated

Arek

PS. Andre, I sent privete message with my phone number and if You can, send me an sms back, please.

I'll be in TV Polonia on 15.03 in program "Sniadanie na podwieczorek". It will be only a few minutes :-)

I'm not sure if can come to RIB-ex with ONYX, as the boat will be back in PL in approximately 2 months, and main engine will need to be repaired - I had quite serious failure during voyage and my maximum speed when I was making circumnavigation of Isla Hornos dropped down to 7 kn, and when I had encontered high seas and 35 kn of wind even less than 5 kn of speed. I think that the problem is with the high pressure fuel pump (I hope that is the name of the part pumping fuel into injectors, in English), as the fuel which I bought in Punta Arenas wasn't the best. Unfortunately, changing of the fuel filters didn't help...

After your RIB comes to Poland it should come to "good" hands and engine will be "made" !! My rally driver can make this engine be full of energy :-)

For me one time is enough
On 17th I'm going to Gory Sowie (Sowie Mountains) to work on Poland Trophy
I think, that Explona Marine is perfect for guys, who has to sail long routes and can get bored behind helm or has to make some other things ie have a piss or have a drink or other fancy things
