Small fish in a big boat pond

Papeete Tahiti, French Polynesia

It has been 4 days of hard work, cleaning the boat inside and out, working on the Gen-set, troubleshooting our inverter that sh!t the bed the other day out of the blue, and buying lots of food.

Good news is work is just about done, new inverter is on the way, and the family arrives this evening. We have met quite a few nice crews on the superyachts surrounding us, culminating in a nice dock party last night, a real treat for me as it was the first time hanging out with people my own age in quite a while.

We had drinks the other night with the crew of Juliet, winner of 1994ish superyacht of the year award, whose captain Johnathan is from NH, went to Colby, and interned at Chuck Paine's office just before I did.

We are about to head over and tour Bliss, a brand new 120 footer just launched in Auckland....quite the neighborhood.
