Loosing the signal from the depth sounder because of a thick u/w carpet of sea weed and slowly lowering our 45-pound CQR anchor into the murky water of an “unknown depth" where it touched unexpectedly the bottom in only 3 m of depth with just 1 m of water left below our keel, thus anchoring just outside the dredged canal and right in front of the fishermen's stilt houses.

Matt: Changing the diesel engine's thermostat without solving the irritating overheating problem.
