It’s always a good idea if nothing works, to get some sleep. After Gui woke me up after four hours of sleep, I had one of my favourites for breakfast: Toast with Nutella and banana. This gave the energy and Bruno gave the motivation. He grabbed the big Mercedes repair manual and searched for the parts related to fuel injection and -filters. We had a good look at the pictures and went through the problem systematically. Diesel: enough in the tank. First filter: new and working. Second filter: Diesel is supplie but nothing exits ! So there’s the problem. We dismounted the filter and cleaned all parts really well, put a new filter inside and again began to pump the air out. After about 1.5 hours of work, the good old Mercedes is running again ! So during the night we really passed the underwater rocks at a distance of about half a mile and drifted four miles out towards the open sea. There was absolutely zero wind, the water was like a mirror. Now with the engine working again, we motored back through the islands and on towards our goal: Costa Rica. Right now we got a little breeze and set sails again, we’re doing three knots and if all goes well, we should arrive in Golfito tomorrow night. Oh ! And we had lots of Dolphins for visit today !
