Day 7 of Work

Days pass by as we work on preparing Wings for the Pacific. These are a few photos of life as we work on the boat. We were still staying at the lovely Pension Tiare Nui. Primitive, yes, but it wasn't on the boat in "project mode".

Conni leaves our bungalow on Tiare Nui early in the morning. We were up at 0600, to Wings at 0700, and returned at 1700 or later. They were long days. Note plastic palm fronds.

A great view of our bungalow.

Early morning at Raiatea Carenage, showing Taha'a in the background.

A close-up view of the boat lifts that we saw all over the island. Owners stand on the tiny pipe platforms and crank their boats out of the water.

Conni towers over our little Fiat.

Bill sits in the cockpit clutter and unpacks the new Mantus 65-pound anchor. We were selected as "ambassadors" for the company since they had none in the South Pacific.

The 65-pound Mantus is in the foreground and our old 42-pound CQR behind. Any questions?
