Nov. 2018 Sindbad is going to Rødbyhavn! The engine is leacking oil and cockpit needs to be worked over. We decide to make a full refit. Thus it definitely makes sense to crane Sindbad ashore. In the traditional shipyard in Rødbyhavn in the South of Lolland, Denmark Sindbad has a place to stay on a trailer for a longer time. My father, René, works at this shipyard and can work on Sindbad after work. He also sails Sindbad from Travemünde to Rødby. First of all Sindbad needs to pass the River Trave and two bridges to reach Travemünde. Unfortunately the engine does not start at the bridge appointment due to a blocked fuel line. We tow her out of the harbour by the Tender of Regina Maris and so it can start its trip to Rødby in winterly temperatures and wind conditions.
After a restless trip and a close call with a freight ship in the Fehmarnbelt René reaches Denmark. A few days later Sindbad is craned and the works starts.
