I preferred being here. It was warmer than being in a house and at least this meant no travelling costs from Tim and Glenda's place and no infringing on his kids.
Matt, an ex-pat Aussie, is doing the boat up for when his girlfrend returns from USA. Poor guy I think she may not be coming back. Matt's a cool guy basically born int sailing and he sure knows a lot. Matt likes to party hard so he turns up at the bat with a hangover almost every day.
Firstly Port Moresby. Wow what a place. Very, very dangerous. Rascals and guns thieves and danger everywhere. No more movie theatre as it was too unsafe for ex-pats to go there.
We left early on the Friday and then sailed non-stop for more than one week for nearly one thousand kilometeres mostly way out of sight of land.
Matt plans the navigaton on his laptop using MacSea software then uploads it to his GPS unit that we follow. In difficult reef waters we use both to steer by.
