Peter, the refrigeration tech, diagnosed the freezer problem as a defective cold plate.John, my neighbor, and myself, pulled the freezer apart and discovered the cold plate had lost the eutectic mixture.I fixed the leak and filled it with an antifreeze/water mix. Walter helped me reinstall it. Peter came, rechecked the freon circuit for leaks, and then pumped it down and added 134A. I replaced the foam insulation and rebuilt the woodwork. The freezer is a go for next year. I am now working in the forward head – the holding tank had broken the restraining straps and needs rebuilding. Walter winched me up the mast to remove the tricolor light, which has problems. Weather is turning colder, soon I will button up Fiona for winter.
