Yesterday was a big day for Rehua: annual haul out. She will be getting new antifouling as well as a general checkup of rudders, bearings, thru hull fittings, rigging, etc.
Tyrii and Seathan sailed the 15 nautical miles from Orakei to Gulf Harbour marina while Aeneas and I drove the car up. Everything went smooth and haul out was one slick operation. In the evening the kids and I took the commuter ferry back to Auckland. It’s not that much fun living on a boat that is on the hard as you can’t use sinks or toilets and there is a lot of dust, paint smells and noise. Mark and Michelle are putting us up and have even arranged for the kids to go to school for a few days, starting tomorrow. They are very excited, and so am I 😉
