September 11 Brad called at 02:45 after 2 hours sleep to say bilge alarm ringing in the forward cabin so lift floorboards and check. Water slowly coming in and bilge pump frozen to the floor. Kevin's watch at 03:00 so he bail bilge into the sink and I went to bed. In the morning Brian and I thawed out the bilge pump and got it working and find the source of the water. We had drained the forward ballast tanks but they had ice and this fjord has slightly warmer water so that was melting and running into the bilge. Troy lit the water heater and Jason put a hose to the fresh water tanks and we circulated hot water until they were warm to try to keep everything in the hold from freezing. Blizzard most of the day. Phone Peter Simotiuk our diligent and helpful radio net operator and provide an update of our happenings as our SSB propagation is no good just now. I'm thankful again that Alice insisted I get a Sat. phone.
