Polynesia Postponed

Due to an illness in the family we are delaying our cruise. Those of you who were expecting to see us in French Polynesia, the Cook Islands, Tonga or New Zealand this year may see us in 2015. However we look forward to cruising with our friends in Mexico later this year and may even join the HaHa.

Prepping for Polynesia

 
 
We are now in the throws of prepping for the Pacific Puddle Jump. Interlude has new PPG ABC3 bottom paint, Propspeed, zincs and Awlcare on her Dupont Imron clearcoat topsides thanks to the good folks at KKMI in Richmond.
 
 
Swedish Marine got her Sea Recovery watermaker and Webasto diesel heater (it may be chilly leaving San Francisco) going again. New running rigging by Hansen Rigging was also due after twelve years. Katie is adding a couple more coats of interior varnish and making Costco provisioning runs. Kurt is checking all systems including engines, generators, hydraulics, autopilots, navigation electronics, communications radios and computers. We plan to be underway sometime in April.
