Location: Falmouth, Antigua
Following the quiz we met and divided into small work groups to take on the cleaning challenges that lay before us. I headed up a team including Rob, Katie and Jia Her rust busting and cleaning the outside of the hull. We made quick work of that task and had Argo shining in no time. We then divided and joined the other groups. One tackled cleaning the lazarette, and all its contents including dive gear. Another, cleaned all of the deck storage lockers. The salon and galley also received a good clean. Eli and Claire deserve a shout out for taking on the dirtiest job of the day: cleaning the dreaded grey water tank, where sink water drains before being pumped overboard. The initial smell was not pleasant, but they had it so clean you could eat out of it in no time.
