If the mountain will not come to Muhammad, then Muhammad must go to the mountain. For the past 2 weeks now, we have desperately been looking for a B&G technician to visit Revelations and look at the B&G Hydra 2000 autopilot system and the puzzling problems we are having with the system - but to no avail. If there are no technicians willing to visit Revelations, we will instead visit the technicians. We are renting a car as from tomorrow morning and will drive around 1100 kilometers back to Salvador. We are taking the suspect ACP2 unit with us and this can then be tested at the B&G technician's workshop. If there are any problems with the unit, this will hopefully be sorted out fairly quickly and whilst we are there. We will then discuss the need for a technician to visit Revelations and check out and calibrate the rest of the system.
We hear that the the roads are bad, full of pot holes, hectic and reckless drivers, not roadworthy vehicles, then also driving on the wrong side (drive in the right hand lane) of the road and as yet, we have no clue which roads lead to Salvador - I think we are in for an interesting trip to Salvador. But this will also be an opportunity to see more of Brazil and a welcome break from what we have been doing to date.
