Need Lat / Long of Sunken Atoll

I remember reading about a sunken island somewhere between NZ and some pacific islands to the North west and on to asia .... or Tahiti maybe?

It's basically a ring of shallow coral at low tide, think there is a break in it where you can carefully get inside.

OH that's your site Dave!? Well congrats on a nice site, nice boat too. Hope you don't mind if I live your life all over again?

Would you do it again and if so what would you leave out and where would you linger longer?


P.S. Your kids might not show it so much yet but that is a lifetime of experience they will never forget. I've noticed "boat kids" are so mature, well spoken and well behaved beyond their years. Must be home school?

Seriously that looks absolutely amazing. It makes me want to go out and make a million dollars and do it myself!

We would have spent less time in Tonga and went to Fiji. I was going to list my favorite places in order for you but I had two many competing for first place I could not start it so I gave up.
