SY "Kamu II" at anchor, at 2 m depth, on sand (excellent holding), opposite the Oman National Dive Centre.

Cleaning the hull below the waterline, the keel and the skeg of our 43-foot ketch SY "Kamu II", labouring with heavy-duty spatulas and hard brushes, removing eventually a two-inch thick, pizza-frutti-di-mare-like layer of strong barnacles and soft coral which had mistaken our old antifouling for a healthy culture medium and remembering the old definition of cruising: "Fixing your ship in exotic places!" 

Huh, please don't you rock my boat
'Cause I don't want my boat to be rockin' anyhow
Please don't you rock my boat, no
'Cause I don't want my boat to be rockin'…”



Enjoying a great farewell beach party with Spanish red wine, grilled seafood and fish, organised by fellow sailors Teresa & Lorenzo from SY "Lesprit DuVignemale"; muchas gracias, dear friends.
