Sea Trials April 14 or Sooner

More selling stuff and more running around. We still have both feet planted on solid ground, but it is staring to feel like it's rolling a bit...

We got a date for sea trials based on marina haul-out openings. If something opens sooner, we will bump up the date. The current owners are ready to head out of state.

Wow, there's a lot to do to get into a boat and live aboard it and ensure it's ready to sail in Hawaiian waters.

And I have a nasty cold.

Aloha ahiahi!

Crazy here. K is running all day estate sale, reducing us from a three-bedroom household to a 35' catamaran.

Big progress on Day One, which bodes well. We will be afloat soon!

Endeavour Victory 35

We've been in Hawaii for a year now and we are looking at moving to a boat. Surprisingly, living on a boat is not easy in Hawaii. Where Florida has many options for sailors, Hawaii is somewhat limited. I imagine it's because the ports are limited. Much of the coastline is fringed by reefs. The big island is probably the least accessible, especially when comparing coastline total distance to the accessible ports.

The cat we are looking at is currently in Kewalo boat basin and would make a good liveaboard. Kris has gone into action to make quick sales on all of our household goods. In fact, she's quite proudly stripped her closet down to a bare minimum of outfits that should easily fit in the smaller space afforded by lockers on a 35-foot catamaran.

More to come. Watch this space...
