Mon Ami on land in Grenada

The first days in January 2019 we enter into Spice Island Marina on Grenada to lift up Mon Ami on land until we come back in December. It’s a bit emotional and a lot of things to take care about to leave your boat for almost a year on land.

Sails down for repair and storage.
Take down the Vang for bracket repair.

Replace the Goose-neck that connect the main boom to the mast and replace washers.
We need to fold down the stainless steel poles that holds the wind turbine, solar panels and antennas to lift Mon Ami of Sweden
Spice Island Marina on Grenada have a 70 ton Travelift suitable for the 30 ton heavy Mon Ami.

Moisture, humidity and mold is a major concern. We use 8 dehumidifier with crystals.
All cousins is lift up for ventilation.
The marina assist to refill the dehumidifier crystals every month.

Electric cables that is connected directly to the batteries are disconnected.
Electric dehumidifier take out the worst moist but is then shut off as we do not have shore power.
All food is stored in triple plastic bags to avoid cockroaches and other bugs.
Björns parents Anne and Pär Johanson meet us on Arlanda to congratulate to our adventure!
