Afternoon Update

13 January 2013 | Huahine
Afternoon update:
It’s 2:20pm and the rain is still falling full bore. A minute ago lightning hit the water near the boat and the resulting thunder was instantaneous and LOUD! A little un-nerving to say the least. I’m going to sit in this nice protected bay until this blows itself out, it would have been a crappy 1st of many days to Oahu. 1 more day in the big picture isn’t much to lose plus it will be nice to have a full day to get in the groove without being soaking wet, no dodger or bimini on this boat.
Time out.

3pm
More of the same, looks like a lot of run off as the waters from to the entrance in the reef are a river of brown. Sure glad CNi boatyard checked all the hatches like I had asked, not! Leaks in the forward cabin over the bunk, another in the main salon, skylights leak on the salon table and the main hatch, when closed, leaks into the galley. Hard to have work done properly when the yard is a few 1,000 miles anyway. Hell bad enough when the yard is in your hometown! BUT! I have Gorilla tape! Can’t figure out why the masthead tri-color and anchor light just quit, power at the panel and may take a ride to the masthead once the lightning is over for sure to check it out. Don’t really feel like climbing a lightning rod today.
All for now, reporting live from Fare Huahine French Polynesia,
