whitianga marina haul-out & our new box

by James Burwick

Anasazi Girl is on the hardstand.
We are preparing her for more wave sailing in the Southern Ocean.
All gear is off the boat.
1st interior deep clean.
Rudders out.
JP3 Rudder bearings out.
Gori propeller off.

The 5 of us are living two blocks away from the boatyard.
We have a one room place the Kiwis call a "sleep out."
A bed for us and mattresses on floor that make a giant bed for the kids.
Wow.  What a concept.  Nice change.
We are cooking on the Origo meth stove from the boat and have a BBQ in the yard.
A little black cat with yellow eyes comes by.
The grocery store is two blocks away.
We are walking not driving.
