Trapani – boat cleaning and maintenance

A day of leisure and boat maintenance is how we started day three in Trapani.

Alex and I set to work cleaning the top side of Aria, whilst Massimo went on an expedition for a haircut and spare fuel filter.

He can back whilst we were half way through cleaning and promptly set about change filters, dismantling, cleaning and reassembling the fuel pump, which upon inspection had a few bits of diesel bug in it.

Job done, and we had lunch on the boat and relaxed for the remainder of the day, before venturing out for a final day in the city and finding and indulging in a new pizzeria called “Le Vele ristorante pizzeria”

Trapani is a beautiful city and well worth a visit and a few nights stay. It’s my second time here, but with every visit there is more to discover in this beautiful city and surrounding area.

The marina and staff are the most helpful I have come across and Gabriella, the marina manager, is always happy to assist and recommend places of interest and eateries.
