Finnmaster

Nearly at the end of our crossing to Finland. It has been a really good experience – we have been looked after, fed, had lots of conversations and feel ready to tackle the first leg on foreign soil! First job is to find a motor factor and buy an oil filter (or two) and then a friendly garage so that Chris can remove the petrol pump again and try and solve the oil leak issue.

The gym… unfortunately (!) the crossing was a bit too rough for us to make proper use of it!
Look at Arthur’s cabin! Complete with lounge area and en-suite shower room. Sucks to Brittany Ferries!!!
Departing Hull, the view from the bridge.
Catching the rays… up on the bridge deck, although it was actually quite a rough crossing despite the sunshine!
Chris soon got an invitation onto the bridge, although there is a chart on the chart table in reality the whole system is much more high tech.
The Finnmaster approaching the Oresund Bridge. The Austin is on the deck below the lorries, safe and sound and in the dry!
We made such good time across the North Sea the Captain decided that we could take the route under the Oresund Bridge. We went under just after dawn, it was stunning, but we were in for a surprise soon after…
Straight into a low pressure system!
