Leopard with a Telephone Pole in her Side – and Fijian Buzz Cuts

We have received requests for more pics so here are a few from today. This poor cat is high and dry with a big hole in her side. It’s on shore between Waitui Marina and the Copra Shed. We spoke to her owner today and they are going to epoxy plywood to her hull so she can sail to Denarau for repairs. He had 10 liters of resin in his checked bag. 

The other shot is my Fijian haircut today. What a mistake to arrive with hair – it’s like wearing a wool cap you can’t remove. The Mermaid cut it all off and my internal temp immediately dropped five degrees. Thanks babe!

Tomorrow we provision up, bend on our genoa and go for a test sail. I went up the rig today and everything looks great. Ellie continues to impress as always. 

Bruce and Jen sailed in today. We loaded them up with all their stuff they were stowing aboard Ellie while we were away. So much more room now! I’m trying to get Lyss to challenge me to a game of twister in the mid cabin but she’s not going for it…
