Rocks and Rolling

07 May 2010 | Day Twenty
May 7

Last day turns out to be most uncomfortable of trip. Surrounded by very short period 2 and 3 meter peaks that throw the boat around like a rag doll. Despite previous comments, wouldn't want to do this indefinitely. Am now eagerly anticipating anchorage at Hanavave (Hah-nah-VAH-vay). About 40 NM remaining and have slowed to arrive dawn tomorrow.

Conditions did, however, provide a convenient excuse for not doing housework. Boat looks like the last hour of a garage sale and it's OK. Things that had been secure for nearly two weeks were flung about and that's OK, too. Will clean it all up after sufficient rest in a day or two or so... probably.

Talked to a couple of boats (manner of speaking, actually spoke to people inhabiting them) about anchorage. They loved it. It's crowded, 100 feet deep, rolly and subject to williwaws. After three weeks at sea, Playita in Panama would probably seem like heaven.

Not too much sleep tonight watching out for converging cruisers, a big motu (rock) about 15 NM this side of Fatu Hiva and, of course, the island itself which is quite hard and must be avoided even during arrival at leeward side anchorage.
