Death and Life

A grim way to start the day. I discovered two small bodies up on the fo’c’sle head during my visual inspection on Saturday. Strange that one was by the top of the port ladder and the other one was by the top of the starboard ladder. Is someone trying to tell me something?

On a cheerier note, there seems to be a dove’s nest (with egg) on the bowsprit:

It will be interesting to see if it hatches.

Unfortunately, the pumping system is down at the moment:

Paul has taken both of the pumps apart and is ready to work on them once he gets his hands on the parts.

Tug of the day…Miki Hana…in the harbor without a barge:

Boat news of the week was the Transpac. I took a few shots of Ragamuffin, which was at Pier 9.

I’m not into racing, but it was interesting to check out the boat:

Sorting out a sail on the pier (DOT Harbors people not happy about that):

Just another hot, sunny day in Hawai‘i.

Even the doves needed to cool off:
