Finally got a little more wind, maybe 10-12 knots. As an experiment, I lashed on a pair of old rusty beach chairs onto the hiking seats. Amazing! Total comfort and no more backache from sitting on a hiking seat for hours at a time. Now for some drink holders :-)
Yesterday I peaked out at 7.7 knots of boat speed according to my GPS.

The Tamanu was in great shape stored under a house with the exception of forty pounds of mud dauber/mason bee nests that we had to scrub out.

After a winter with little or no sailing but a lot of sawing and sanding, it's time to return to Fiji for two weeks. The Tamanu is disassembled and stored under a house there. Hopefully the parts are all still there and in good condition.
This what our cruising ground looks like. Lots of islands and coral reefs to sail around and chase some fish.
