Slow Ride
Adventures of our DE38
01/19/2015, Opua, NZ

Our inflatable kayak found a good home. Had it listed on TradeMe and there was a bidding war. Got twice what we wanted and it turns out the guy who bought it was only 3 boats away from us!

Julie completed the starboard side pin rails and the butterfly hatch today. Sanded and oiled. So much easier with a sander.

Ah yes, Summer in NZ
12/15/2014, Opua, NZ

Gale force winds brought down the internet all day. Finally came back up. Still blowing 20+knts. Waves breaking over the boat even on the mooring. Supposed to be another 2 days of this. Will venture into town tomorrow. Need to get to Pahia before 10am to catch the free bus ride into KeriKeri where they have the larger grocery stores. Dinghy ride in should be adventurous even though it's just in to the wharf. Will catch a cab to Pahia to catch the bus.

Christmas in NZ
Cold and rainy
12/14/2014, Opua NZ

Another cold rainy day in New Zealand with gale warnings.
Forecast was spot on for Sunday. We didn't make into Sunday market or the x-mas party at the yacht club. It wouldn't be so bad if it was just raining....we have rain coats and umbrellas. But the wind.... No fun in a dinghy!
