We departed Florida in June 2006 and visited Mexico, Belize, the Rio Dulce of Guatemala, Roatan, San Andreas, and completed three Panama Canal transits.
I have included below some photos of the DVC working her way up the Rio Dulce. Still the DVC was making constant headway in the light winds. When the Russian super yacht La Gran Bleu arrived in New Zealand with a list of electrical problems they called Yanmar Engineering and Team Yachtwork.
Much of this work was completed during the Christmas holiday period and new years 2006'.
The crew told me I was the best "Tender Engineer" they had ever come across.
Team yacht stayed on after the race and oversaw the repairs to Earthrace.
We had to find an acceptable beach, work the tides as we put the 104ft, 1/4" plated catamaran on the beach, change the propeller, refuel, sail 800 miles, and pick up our next group of 49 passengers. This photo is the result of a gear failure on a 1500hp gearbox.
I arrived to the boat to find an alarm sounding when the gensets started or were shutdown.
On searching the electrical panel I found one of the relays to be wired backward and corrected the problem.
We completed repairs on four of the deck loaded boats.
The 60ft sailing yacht needed new capacitors installed on the Panda generator.
