Limestone Island

02 December 2007 | Whangarei
Well we had all intentions of going for a lovely sail up the harbour on Saturday, but thanks to no wind and drizzly rain we motored to Limestone Island instead. Had an opportunity to sort out a snubber for the anchor, and setup the new Tiller Pilot(Doing big lazy circles, and tacking back and forth). Paul and I had a nice quiet time together.
Paul dived over the side to clean the prop, and discovered that the anode has been half eaten away after only 6 weeks back in the water. The electrician say's this can happen when the boat has been out of the water for a month or so. Will keep and eye on it.
Xavier spent the weekend at home alone, I think He enjoys the time alone as well.

anyway thats all for now.
Vessel Name: Kabuki
Vessel Make/Model: Westsail 32 #425
Hailing Port: Whangarei, New Zealand
Crew: Paul Bowling and Wendy Smith
Paul and I have been sailing around Whangarei and the Bay of Islands for the last 14 years. We have owned a few boats in that time, ranging from a 20ft Trailer Sailer to a 36ft New Zealand built Eric Cox design yacht. [...]
Extra: Thought this would be a good way of keeping family and friends up to speed with our progress on getting Kabuki and ourselves ready for the big adventure.
