Hi Guys / Gals,

I just found this Voyagers section in TF, and thought this may be a cool place to let you know about our plans for our Pacific Crossing to Hawaii.

I will also try to post more regularly on our own website. The latest update is:

Cabo San Lucas, MX | Infinity

Cheers!

No Sir, not us. We bought our boat in Vancouver, BC, and cruised her down to Mexico. We're back up in San Diego now, preparing for the Hawaii trip.

Are you going to follow a similar path to James on Dirona or are only going as far as Hawaii
It would be nice to see you guys out here in Aus and you would thoroughly enjoy it
Cheers

Hi Guys,

We will run to Hawaii (San Diego - Oahu) a distance of 2265 miles with the stock/standard tankage that the vessel was built with - 2500 gallons. No extra fuel bladders will be carried. I sure hope I've got my sums right

Tidahapah,
Yes, we will be loosely following Dirona's path and we will certainly see you OZ one day - perhaps 2016. Should be enough notice for you to get that beer fridge stocked!

My beer/ wine frig is always ready to go.
Will be interesting to see if you go to Fanning Is after Hawaii.
I meant to ask James what it was like as it is one of my must visit Islands.
I fish Xmas Is for bone fish nearly every year a great part of the world and I know you can get fuel there if required.
I can give you a contact there if required before you head off.
Cheers
Benn

Hi Benn,
The plan is Hawaii - (Line Islands; Washington, Fanning, Kiribati) - Marquesas - Tuamotus - Tahiti - Cook Islands - Tonga - NZ - Tasmania - & then up to your neck of the woods, & I'll mostly likely be very thirsty by that time!!

I read this post and your Blog. Did I miss where you purchased a Million dollar+ boat and did not have a survey done? Curious, would a survey have located the issue with the black water system?

Hey BigJim,
Yeah, we had a survey done by one of Vancouver's most respected Marine Surveyors. There is a whole entire story to that,,, perhaps another time though. Suffice to say everything was copacetic for the survey, a week later,,,not so much. It's a boat.

Wifey B: Oh my....wish you hadn't said this. I mean we're about to go down the west coast and a little detour to Hawaii would be like super cool. But that's for a later year I guess. Adding another 5000 miles to what is already around an 8000 mile trip probably not for now. One day though.

Can't wait to follow your trip.

Awesome!

I read your blog and this post twice. Based on the black water issue and all your remodeling I thought I hope this guy had a survey done.

Looks like more than half way there. What an awesome trip. We're (NJ) supposed to get temps in the upper 20s at night by the end of the week. YES I WISH I WAS THERE LOL.
