Beginning prep for passage to NZ

Greetings from Vanuatu, dear Wendy and Dave, so........ getting ready to head south hey..... We will head back to NZ towards the end of month. It would be lovely to catch up somewhere, or are you flying home?

Awesome. We are not heading back to the US. We hope to spend some time in NZ playing tourist and then time doing some boat projects.  One, the deck! We have the material just need to complete the patterns now.  Look forward to seeing you guys again. -Cheers
