Déjà vu – engine seized again – a motor ismét bedöglött /Malta/

We motored to Xemxija bay to have a bbq with friends on board Ondine, which was great. The next morning however as we set off to Sicily the engine seized again. So after having had Ondine out on the hard a second time and had two sets of engineers come and have a look at her, we still seem to be having the same problem. James thinks it’s the starter motor that needs to be checked. In virtually no wind, no outboard motor and no engine, it took us a while to sail back to Msida.  So now we’re stranded again but are still both intent on casting off as soon as we can. As much as I’m enjoying myself in Malta, I’m starting to feel like a prisoner here.

Pénteken elmotoroztunk Xemxija öbölbe, hogy ott találkozzunk barátokkal. Idáig tökéletesen el is jutottunk. Másnap reggel ötkor indultunk volna Szicíliába, de tíz perccel azután, hogy elindultunk, eszünkbe jutott, hogy az olajszintet meg kéne nézni. Emiatt leállítottuk a motort. Én meg is néztem (tökéletes volt), de a motort ezek után már nem lehetett beindítani. Így nulla szélben, motor nélkül és tartalék külső motor nélkül kellett visszajutnunk a kikötőbe. Ismét be kellett magunkat vontatni.
