We look back to a day full of challenges. Firstly, the starter of the HBI boat broke after the delivery of bentonite to the barge in the morning hours. While we brought the starter to a garage in the city of Ohrid, Jess punctuated his hand with a screwdriver on the barge. The medical examination in the hospital indicated that fortunately the movement of his fingers was hampered just by a hematoma. After repairing the starter we brought Jess and the starter back to the barge and the HBI boat but bad luck continued. Another break of the wireline caused the rods to get stuck. The HBI boat was repaired and left the barge at 11 PM. Eventually the rods got free at 2 AM in the morning.
