This pleasant guest harbour, where you use your own stern anchor, was very well sheltered from the strong northerlies we had when I was there. It might be a bit crap in strong south easterlies, but you’d probably be OK round the north side of the long pontoon. There’s just a composting bog and, of course, a sauna, but no shower. The island is a pleasant one to wander, with a good road. There’s a small shop roughly in the middle. To the north is a free open-air museum, consisting of traditional farm buildings which were, apparently, gifted by an eccentric old bloke in the 1970s.
The local student who gave free guided tours made it interesting. I was there in July, so it was open. Doubtless it is shut at all other times. Whilst on Enklinge I was preoccupied by the need to replace my propeller, which fell off in Lappo (No.83). When I dived over the side and found half the prop missing I had visions of spending months on Enklinge trying to sort it out. But with the help of an old fixed bladed prop I found lying in the bilge and a welder and metal worker who was also a qualified diver and happened to be on the boat next door, the apparently intractable problem was sorted in a couple of hours. Thanks to the diver, whose name was Christian. All praise to the only useful Christian I’ve ever met.
