Hidden Haul Outs In the South Pacific

It seems appropriate that as we FINALLY leave the boatyard here in the Philippines a round-up of yards that we have used and discovered on our travels through the South Pacific is published in Cruising World Magazine.

If you are looking for a place to do work, hide during cyclone season or store the boat while you enjoys the spoils of land back home (or at work) this one is chocked full of info about boatyard in Fiji, Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands.

However, anyone that owns a boat knows that just because you leave the boatyard doesn’t mean that the work is over!

I am happy to report that we are afloat and it feels great. But, we still a few issues to iron out. NO surprise considering the scope of work that was carried out engine wise. As we wait for the boat to settle so we can do the final alignment, and a few parts to be sourced, we are happy to get the boat, and ourselves, organized and prepared for the next leg of the journey, and to enjoy the view.
