    Stinkpot Agound at Honolua Bay

    Everything I’ve heard is consistent with what MauiPunter & others have said above. One interesting thing is that the State Day-use mooring program isn’t well-supported by the State, so a non-profit, Malama Kai, really does the work to maintain the network (they do a great job on low resources...

    Show your boat not sailing

    Haha, yep, yep. Dove on it to inspect. Double pin design and in good-looking condition, so we were comfortable. Still, wife & I took turns snorkeling with the kids while the other sat in the cockpit ready to spring into pucker mode if something failed. Yeah, just grabbed it for a few hours of...

    During a recent family adventure on a 5-day, 371nm loop of Oahu-Hawaii-Maui-Molokai-Oahu, we had spectacular sailing conditions on the home stretch in the Ka'iwi Channel. 18-22kts, with gusts of 25kts and not much higher. 4-6ft seas and we were sailing wing & wing at 7-8 kts, surfing to 10kts on...

In past...

    24VDC hydraulic pump replacement specs?

    The belowdecks pump controlling the in-mast main & Genoa furling burned out on a 1995 Najad 440. There's a Lewmar sticker on the 9L tank, but I can't find specs or documentation on the pump itself and the local hydraulic shop here hasn't been helpful. Lewmar's web site doesn't seem to have any...

    Fishing while sailing - who's into it?

    For anything more than a quick sunset sail, I’ll generally troll between 3-5 lines, depending on sea state. Used to have a 28’ Uniflite and fish it a lot, so not about to give up proper fishing just because we traded up to our dream cruiser. Here’s a 30-pounder from a recent jaunt down on...
