"Update from Rosslyn Bay: TEKANI II isn't going anywhere until the weatherman gets his act together and brings some reasonable weather back to sunny (?) Queensland. The remains of Cyclone Fina are still producing strong SE winds with sea and swell to match, and Cyclone Grant is about to start a new life in the Coral Sea after jumping Cape York, probably Saturday AM.
I will make a final attempt to get the Paguro genset repaired and working again at Gladstone Marina where there may even be an electrician who has seen one of these exotic Italian imports, before junking it for one that works.
Happy New Year everybody!"
