The maintenance continues but we're getting closer to being back in the water. Cleaning and repainting the engine room and replacing various engine components while the motor and gearbox are out also adds to time taken but well worth it. Talking to a friend who out around Steeles Reef off Waihi Beach last weekend where they had a humpback whale cruising the area, slapping his tail and generally bopping around.

There seems to have been a few more sightings than normal this year. The fishing's been slow, and water temperature's been down too, likely all interrelated. Colder temps change the current flows and create different conditions and we get the usual variations from season to season.
