Honokaipe Bay

We left Honokohau Harbor at 10 AM. We found a day mooring about 25 miles north and were tied up by 2:30. Everything's fine with us. A few small problems. The radar displays an error that the "antenna is not rotating". I'll have to look into that later. The wind vane wouldn't steer. After we settled in, I fixed the wind vane, a screw had worked loose. I also finally hooked up the wind speed indicator.

We are right in front of the Hilton Hotel. There are large catamarans giving tours. One of them, suggested we use this buoy. We are in a narrow deep place coming up to the beach. It must be really shallow to either side cause the surf is impressive only 4 or 5 boat lengths away. Maybe 8 to 10 footers. Trinda took some nice surf/sunset photos.

It is purty rolly here, so I'm not sure how long we'll stay. On toward Lihania on Maui next.
