Motor to Evans Bay Slip with Peter - 9 Feb 2014

Motored Halo from Chaffers Marina to Evans Bay for the installation of the new engine.

Crew: Geoff & Peter (Graciela - support driver and photographer).

Northerly 25 knots gusting 35 knots. Seas fairly rough especially just after we cleared the end of the Container Terminal.

Travis had done a temporary fix to the exhaust system to avoid having to tow the boat but the exhaust failed again soon after we left so we motored along with a noisy engine and lots of fumes coming out of the cabin.

No problems navigating out of Chaffers marina or onto the lift at Evans Bay in spite of the winds.

Now looking forward to sailing with our new Nanni 21 HP Engine!
