anchored in Tikopia. Had a little trouble while anchoring Saturday. Fouled the chain in the hawspipe and then lost main power. Drifted onto the reef but managed to get off with the help or the local. Sustained some skeg and keel damage and are unsure weather to continue on through the Solomon's or head Back South. Does anyone know if the haul out facility in leapari can handle a 19 meter 28 ton vessel.
