We are a day late leaving from San Diego on the Baja Ha Ha due to finding oil on the bottom of the windlass and not being able to tell if it had any oil or not in the gear case. We relocated from Chula Vista to Harbor Island on October 30 while Dave and Kevin set to removing and servicing the windlass. Due to the design of the anchor locker separator, it was not possible to completely remove the unit, but they cleaned and regreased the upper unit and found that the gearbox was full of oil.
Confident that we can now retrieve our anchor we are underway for Turtle Bay and to catch up with the fleet!
