walking around Funchal, etc.

Just hanging out in Funchal, until dinner time.  I did manage to find the electronic components shop here, and got some parts which MIGHT (I hope) help with the magnetic brake project on the other windlass.  I'm puzzled by what I'm seeing there, though.

We're losing 3 crew here- the two volunteers from GAZELLA and our engineer have commitments that preclude their staying on for the probable slow passage to North America.  We still have plenty of people, so the impact on watchstanding will be minimal.  B watch may change a bit, though.  We've been the same group since the beginning, although I took lots of time off for my various jaunts.
