Re: Oahu Ancorage

Here's a photo that I took yesterday at Waimea Bay, on the North Shore. There was quite a surge coming in to the marina at Hale'iwa, too. Kids were surfing in the fairway leading into the basin.

Re: Oahu Ancorage

Thanks Hud,
Seems like you're getting a good view of all the weather and waves. In a town called Kahuku my wife and I got trapped in a flood and couldn't get through in the car. A bunch of high school kids were stationing themselves on each side of the flooded area and pushed the cars through as they stalled out in the water. Great bunch of kids that pushed us through. After sitting for a bit I got the car started and were off home again. The next morning that car wouldn't start so I took the distributor cap off and dumped the water out, let it dry and it started right up. I don't know how we got home the evening before. Lucky I guess.

DRussell,
Thanks for the weather report. You folks have had some excitement the last day or two. We haven't gotten that weather from yet but from what I understand it should be arriving soon.

You didn't specify which direction "between". The best anchorage I found was Pokai Bay. Search "Pokai Bay Beach Park, Waianae, HI" in google maps. Leeward side of the island (mostly), holds up to 5 boats. Free. Small town. 72 hour limit which at the time 2 years ago could be circumvented legally. Bus to Honolulu. State run marina nearby. Jerry jug to town for fuel.

Pokai Bay is nice, but I wouldn't want to leave an unattended boat down there for long....

Re: Oahu Ancorage

I lived on Oahu from 1986 thru 1995, and did a huge amount of scuba diving during my residence. The only place I ever had any problems (car broken into numerous times) was leeward from Electric Beach (Nanakuli) to Pray for Sex (Makua Beach).

Granted. I did leave there almost 10 years ago, and things may have changed- but that was my experience.

Re: Oahu Ancorage

Understand. I felt like an outsider in mexico, but the vibe in Hawaii was a little more tense.

Re: Oahu Ancorage

Just a haole here as well I only come on plane every couple of years for now but when day I hope to sail by the winds to here. There is a locals versus mentality here but it's the same as any city in the world I think, I see it in my hometown too, most hawaiins are very friendly and accommodating to visitors
