Passage to Hawaii

A december crossing from Cabo San Lucas

We socked away all sorts of canned food and beverages for what we expected could be over a month at sea.

It was difficult to even cook a package of dryed soup mix with the boat rolling back and forth. A slight cant to the pan helped keep spilling to a minimum.

With the wind from astern rain from the squals blew down the hatch if all the boards were not in. A fabric rainguard still allowed some ventilation while keeping most of the rain out.

We saw only one ship on the entire crossing.

And then we saw it again two weeks later going the other direction.

Sunset reflects on the waves.

Eva cuts through the waves.
