Let’s hope for Hawaii.

We’re at the tail end of our weather window and plan on departing today at 4:00pm -- that’s in about 3 hours! We had a last minute scare because the watermaker boost pump decided to quit just as we did our final test. Fortunately, we figured out how to use one of our other pumps and did some quick engineering to replace it. The new pump seems to work better than the old one did!

We still need fuel and our final grocery run for fresh things. But I think we’re good to go. We expect some ugly waves tomorrow, but winds look reasonable. A bit more wind off the side than I prefer but it should become more and more behind us as we go along.

See you all on the other side.
