Mahimahi departing. With Foss tugs Freedom and Pi‘ilani.
Getting pushy. Freedom versus Mikioi.
Maunawili arriving. With Mikioi:
Things were looking really scary for a while with hurricanes Madeline and Lester headed for Hawai‘i. Fortunately, Madeline turned to the south and Lester to the north of the islands. Whew!
Due to the hurricane threat, there was no harbor traffic in the morning, but things picked up in the afternoon after it became clear Lester was moving away from O‘ahu.

After a few rough weeks, it was wonderful to be allowed to tag along with Captain Enos on the Horizon Reliance job. There is nothing like being out on the water.

I love the lines of these old LASH ships!

Had a rough week too?
Thanks to Captain Ed Enos and Paul. Feel much better.
While it’s interesting to see new or different ships, it’s always good to see “old friends.”
