It was a sunny, calm morning when we set out for a bit of meander-motoring toward our next destination. Thanks to our friend, Timo aboard S/Y Seasick-Luzie, for a key piece of wood that enabled Brian to fashion a temporary set-up for the fish finder (which doesn't exactly fit into Detour's navigation station scheme). Brian finally cast his new rod into the sea; rigged with specifically selected lures to entice the fishes of the north. [Yes, please do insert your hilarious "casting his new rod" jokes here!] Brian had big hopes for snagging a cod, or maybe a sea trout... but the finder detected no fishes below and the lures did not temp these northerners!

The fish finder display is plugged via extension cord into the 12-V outlet; next addition should probably include a suction type mount to keep the finder's display stable beneath the dodger.[/caption]

The transducer for the fish finder is affixed to the base of this (Timo's) board, and plunked into the water from the anchor roller of Detour's swim platform; to be stowed when not in use.[/caption]

At the island of Lyo, we anchored yet again in sand beneath crystal clear water and ventured into this charming island community; another of Denmark's South Funen Archipelago, a region which has been nicknamed the Caribbean of the Baltic.
