Going Back

Dear Beatrice 
After thinking about this over night I have decided that I cannot sell Sapphire. I am sorry to disappoint you and Richard but the boat means too much to me and I am going to continue with my plan to return on Thursday to fix the Hydrovane and sail to Fiji. I apologise for this change of plan. Thank you for your help and interest in Sapphire.I am sure you will be able to find another nice boat for Richard. 
After sending this I felt as if a huge weight had just been lifted off my shoulders and I felt better than I had for weeks. And when I checked the FedEx tracking page, my Parcel had arrived in Raiatea, so things seemed to be working out for once.
I flew to NZ and stayed in Auckland 2 nights, then once again aboard Air Tahiti Nui flew back to Papeete, dragged my suitcase across the road to the Airport Motel then in the morning flew back to Raiatea and got to the boat at about 3pm., Thursday. There were no rude surprises or shocks – but then I had been gone only four weeks. In a couple of hours I had taken the Hydrovane off the stern and Dominic, the Boss at RCS looked at the new parts and we made a plan to get started on reattaching it in the morning.
On Friday – yesterday – we cleaned off the transom , removing the yellow and blue “Sapphire” sticker and closing all the old bolt holes with fiberglass. A new timber pad was shaped for the bottom bracket and much bigger backing plates made. The bottom bracket was reattached  temporarily and the new “A” bracket fitted using 5cm diameter PVC pipe as a guide to working out how long to make the arms from the supplied stainless steel tube. By days end – they knock off early on Friday – all that remained to be done was sanding back the fiberglass patches, a little painting and then the final fitting and reattachment of the Hydrovane with the Bolts I bought with me. This will be done on Monday, and we will relaunch on Tuesday. All I need to do then is motor back to Uturoa and restock with food and fuel, and I plan to leave for Suwarrow Atoll on Wednesday, local time, weather and everything else permitting.
A few hours before the bolt broke

  1. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: or WhatsApp him +15068001647
