The Plan

thanks Kanani you are a wealth of information.

Now ....if I find a boat early I'll have to have her in a berth or put her up in dry storage. While that's happening she'll get fitted out for ocean passage.

So..... I was wondering what the average rate was for berthing or getting a hardstand in Hawaii.

cheers

Getting a slip or mooring in Hawaii is next to impossible. They have all kinds of empty slips and moorings but politics dictates that they have these long waiting lists....it makes no sense but that's just the way it is and it has been that way for 20 years.

It used to be (pre-1990) that you could go into Keehi Lagoon and anchor anywhere (I lived there at the time). In 1990 they put in moorings where the yachts were anchored and forced everyone to get an inspection and move onto a mooring. Since then, a great deal of the moorings have been empty for years but they tell you that they are full and you must get on a waiting list.

To get a hardstand, contact:
(Keehi Marine Center - Honolulu, HI) Boatyard

However, it's not like most places where you can store your boat on the hard for cheap. In Hawaii, it's more $ to keep it on the hard than in a slip or mooring (if you can get one).

The fact is...Hawaii politics is VERY unfriendly to boaters.

Well, look at the track that he took. He went East, all the way to Tahiti. That's fine if your cruising and don't mind working to get all of that Easting. That trip was at least 3,000nm farther than what you are talking about with a straight shot.

I'm amazed to hear that Hawaii is boater unfriendly. Heck! Isn't the state surrounded by water?
