s/v Code Blue – Slight Update – We are in Hana Moe Noa, Tahuata Island May 17, 2014

Posted by steveandjudy in Code Blue 2014.

We are are in Hana Moe Noa, near Vaitahu on island of Tahuata, not far from Atuona. We are at S 09* 54.4′, W 139* 00.3′, Not too far from Hiva Oa as we can see the island nearby. Steep white sand beach, aqua marine water due to the 30′ deep bay, tropical fish around, 13 cruisers in here.

I spent yesterday cleaning our bottom with a friends gasoline Hooka system. There is a very nice coral reef right under our boat that I checked out. Judy tended the motor in the dinghy with ear muffs and a book. I’m not impressed with our Blue Water Marine paint, ablative, from New Jersey. We just painted in December and already major growth. This is the second time, I cleaned the bottom good, just before we left PV was the first. Small barnacles every inch or so on a great major of the hull and rudder. Speed Prop on the prop is mostly gone now, due to the pitch change I made. Other boaters using Mexican ablative, have almost nothing.

Maybe a potluck on the beach tonight. But it rained last night some.

I guess I’m not communicating with the group that well. I thought we were headed to Resolution Bay. This is a couple of miles further north on the same island.
