Glad you made it safely. Noticed the other day that the manufacturer’s site has pics of your boat on it! Neat.
A lot of skill and some luck (not hitting that net at night) and you’re there. I have to say it: wow. I take it that Dirona was flawless. How long do you plan on staying in the islands and are there any good spots to anchor or will your visit be exclusively docked up? Cheers,
Congrats, guys. Never a doubt that you’d be safe and sound. It was fun to check in on you each day via the log posts; that’s a great feature. Thanks for having us along for the ride. Ced & Stef
Jamie, it was an unusually good crossing and we’re loving being here.
Thanks Yair. Yes–mechanically everything went very well. We’ll probably be around for a couple of months–we’ll see how it goes. We hope to do a little bit of both on the cruising and docking.
Thanks Cedric & Stef. We had a great trip and are looking forward to cruising the Hawaiian islands.
Glad you made it – though neither of you look like you’re enjoying yourselves!
Does 1 flopper stopper works or 2 is better?
Bob asked "Does 1 flopper stopper works or 2 is better?" There is little question that two would likely be better. The trade-off is the amount of gear and, more importantly, the work to deploy the second unit compared to the additional impact. I’m guessing 1 flopper is probably 70% of the the impact of 2 so, on many Nordhavns, only 1 pole is installed.
