We attend a training of the Canadair. And right in front of the boat! It was really cool!
That's it, a crane should be available in two days. We all look forward to putting Vagabond back in the water and being able to live aboard normally. Meanwhile, since the site is closed at night, we camp outside the fence (with the mosquitoes!). Or we accept an invitation to town if it rains too much (thanks Doreen).
The starboard propeller shaft has just been reassembled without too much difficulty, the last September incident was simply by loosening a nut. Problem solved! A little bit of painting on the hull, then other preparations will be done afloat.
It's a bit of a scenery to mingle with the little crowd of Happy Valley Goose Bay to celebrate the 150th Canada Day. The brand new Splash Pad and Fireworks are very popular.
France, Eric, Léonie and Aurore are back on board Vagabond in Goose Bay, Labrador; heading to Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon.
France and Eric are following EU Aid Volunteers training, in Lunteren, Netherlands, from May 31 to June 9 2017.
