Boats: repairs at Chilumba, newbuild at Macduff

During John’s last visit, the fishing boat, recently built at Chilumba, was afloat but rather low in the water as it had broken its mooring and hit a local rock. Patrick, the builder, is going to get the boat out of the water and repair it so that on the next trip to Malawi I will get it sailing and working for its living.

Work is progressing on the clinic boat being built at MacDuff for use down the lake from Mlowe by Livingstonia hospital. It is hoped to have this finished and ready to launch in November. Safety equipment is still required and a few important items.
