Hawaii Delivery

I'm in Hawaii right now getting ready to sail a Columbia 50 from here to San Diego. I flew in to Kauai a week ago, with plans to sail straight from there to California. Unfortunately, as we left Hanalei Bay on the north end of the island, the fuel tank began leaking. This was quite the problem as we would soon have 100 gallons of fuel in the bilge and no diesel to power the navigation.

So, as it is, we sailed into Oahu and pulled the tank. A new one is being built and we will head out sometime soon. It looks to be quite a great delivery, and a great way to continue training for the round the world voyage.
