We departed Gocek after having a few days in the Municipal Marina. Our plan was to go out for a few days and return to allow workmen to fix a job that needed urgent repairs. Once again we have had problems that have occured due to the bad workmanship that was done in Preveza over winter. We also made the decision to replace the covers on the front sunlounges and replace the bimini at the stern of the Tangaroa, as both had started to deteriorate badly during this trip. We were very fortunate to find a wonderful sailmaker called Adullah (Apol for short) who was happy to do the job for us, so he measured up and when we return he would do some fittings. We left Gocek late afternoon and travelled south to one of the islands in the large Gocek Bay area called Tersane. We dropped anchor in the bay with the same name as the island and was impressed with the Byzantine ruins that were scattered all around the foreshore. This bay in the past housed a sizeble community however the land is now owned and run by just one family who have developed a restaurant and a pier for its customers, who mostly come by boat.
