MORE MAINTENANCE IN HONOLULU

Today I really got into the cleaning and maintenance spirit.  One thing led to another and before I knew it lunchtime had arrived.  Today it was bilge cleaning, inside deck scrubbing, carpet washing and overhauling the Whale Gusher 25 bilge pump.  Doesn’t sound too much but it kept me occupied most of the day. I … Continue reading MORE MAINTENANCE IN HONOLULU

I awoke this morning early, someone was launching a boat from the jetty and making a big noise about it.  Oh well, it was a nice … Continue reading A VISIT TO LONO HARBOUR
