Rio Grande - Maintenance

Last day in Rio Grande. We cleared out yesterday.

Kiriwina will be 15 years old this year. The first 20 metres of her anchor chain have pretty much lost all galvanising and rust freely. I'm not sure yet whether I will re-galavanise or purchase new chain. In the UK I would re-galvanise but over here I suspect a new chain will be cheaper.

Chain corrosion.

Today I replaced the anchor chain markings and topped up with 95L of fresh water. Donation to the museum R$70 and a final supermarket shop.
