This has been an uneventful passage thus far. Uneventful is as good as it gets! The only glitch has been the leaking swimstep hatch which the manufacturer just adjusted the day before our departure. Obviously that didn’t work! They say they will come to Hawaii to make it right. Stay tuned. The weather was calm enough for me to open the lazarette hatch and wash the salt out of the things that got drowned in the flooded swimstep. I’m not sure what the official definition of a lazarette is, but t...

9/2 0800 position 22-13N 159-30W.  At anchor in Hanalei Bay in 30 feet, sand bottom. As the mighty Starr entered Hanalei Bay yesterday morning we could see pal Mitch Haynie tow in surfing on his foiling board on the reef at the entrance to the bay.  Lori told me by email that he’d be out there this morning, taking advantage of the season’s first big north swell.  Fortunately, the swell wasn’t big enough to ruin the Hanalei anchorage, but it will ruin our plans to head down to some of my favorit...

9/1 0600 position 22-28N 159-12W. Wind NE@9 knots. Seas 3 feet. 21 miles from Hanalei. When I came on watch at 1AM this morning I could just see the loom of Honolulu’s lights off to the south. We never did see any lights on Kauai. Dawn broke this morning when we were still thirty miles from Hanalei, too far offshore to see lights on shore there. We get a bit stir crazy during the night watches aboard Starr, staring at the instruments with nothing else happening. Clay noticed that our log, the...

This is Noodle’s 8/31 blog post: “0600 position 25-17N 156-31W. Wind E@4kts. Seas 2 feet. 245 miles to Hanalei. I’m sure Fred’s advice on the lures was correct, but when the ocean is full of mahi mahi, and not ahi, mahi is what you catch. We put an ahi lure out and caught three more mahi in quick succession, just keeping the last and largest one. We hooked up the second fish before the lure was even all the way out again after releasing the first one. The second was probably one of the first f...
