Aloha from The Big Island of Hawaii

Aloha Everyone,

I just registered here and want to say hello to all.
I own a 1978 MacGregor Venture 25.
I learned to on this boat and I have made several trips to the Island of Maui.
I look forward to using CF to help me find a suitable boat to sail in more comfort and safety. Perhap someday sailing to the South Pacific.

Aloha and Mahalo,
John Tucker

Aloha & Mahalo for joining. What part of the big island are you sailing out of? My greatgrandfather was from Kona, and we will be sailing there soon from Florida. Enjoy your stay here.........i2f

Thank You for the Welcome

Aloha,

Thank you both for the welcome.
I sail out of Hilo, Hawaii (East side of the Island) and live in Pahoa, Hawaii near the lava flows.

Aloha,
John

Look for a red cat with a large white stripe running through the portholes. We should be there in mid June. SkipperJohn I haven't any detailed charts of Hilo yet. Is there a good anchorage, and place for the dinghy to go to shore?.........i2f

Chart 19324

Try the above link for a chart of our bay. You'll see the large breakwall about center. You need to come from seaward around the breakwall then go eastward following the buoys to Reeds Bay anchorage where you'll see a few boats at moorings. If the port authority directs you to Radio Bay you continue on past the piers through a narrow inlet into the little Bay all the way at the eastern portion of the Bay. There is a quay wall in Radio Bay that you can med moor to. There is nothing in Reeds Bay but anchorage area and its 10 to 12 feet deep with mud over smooth rock. Not good in a strong north wind. Most folks take their dinghies with them because there is no dinghy dock. Our club has a place that you can store your dinghy temporarily but it will be hard to find unless you know where it is. Once you've cleared customs and checked in you may want to motor your dinghy over to Wailoa River where there are some places to tie a dinghy and after you cross under the bridge there is a boat ramp. It is at the extreme south on the chart after you enter the Bay.
Once you look over the chart then ask specific questions if you have any.
regards,

Well, I just looked at the chart and realize it isn't too clear where Reeds Bay and Radio Bay are. If you spot the words on the chart "Kuhio Bay" then you'll see Reeds Bay to the south of that the Radio Bay is inside the little inlet to the east of those words. Radio Bay is east of green buoy 9.
Good luck!
regards,
