Saturday

Last night we (Mike, David and I) went to the cruisers Friday night gathering. Some nights it is sparsely attended, last night we were a big group. As we were heading home the heavens opened and it began to rain. After about a half hour there was a break on the rain and we headed back to Reboot. About 1 AM I was awakened by the sound of canvas slapping. The sun cover for the cockpit had ripped loose and was banging. I went out to fix it, within 2 minutes I was drenched. In the dawn light we saw that the harbor water was brown and full of grass and tree branches. The dinghy had a foot of water!

I went in to shore in the morning. I met Kevin Ellis at Yacht Services Nuku-Hiva. Kevin has been kind enough to let me hook up my gaming computer and do the large game update downloads. Since Huku-Hiva is a small island there is not a heck if a lot to do. I have compensated by helping Kevin with various small projects. Today we went up to the wood shop he used to own and built bookshelves and a new counter for his shop.

At sunset, after the necessary beer Kevin dropped me off at Moana Nui - my favorite place for a pizza. The oven is burning but it is still a little early for dinner. I am passing the time by writing my blog.

Fair winds and following seas :)
