Thanks, I'm on a waiting list at rainbow bay, the previous owner of the boat put me on the slip as a co owner so I could keep it there till a slip opens up. Iroquois point is private but they have slips available.
I am from Kauai and was about to make my usual sail across to Keehi to haul out when I was told by the yard that there are NO shower or ablution facilities for visiting yachtsmen! I have hauled out there many times and in fact used to live there and even worked for the yard back in the day, any suggestions???? I would greatly appreciate
there is a book on Kindle about cruising around the world, it has a chapter devoted to the time they spent in Oahu at Keehi Lagoon and Lanai, it may be of some use if you are a novice. It's called, Days of Deja vu', by Jonathan Reid
True no shower facility but there is bathroom you can share with yard workers. I was going to do this and use a hose for shower but ended up selling the boat. You can stay aboard with manager approval. Seems like something could be worked out for shower since they have transient slips by the day and you get shower. Maybe you would have to pay the daily slip rate. Now the shower area and docks are all fenced in so yard is separate compared to the old days. Better for the residents but a PITA for haulouts.
If you are coming from Kauai how about hauling out at Ko Olina instead?
thanks for that info, I heard that Ko olina has the same problem, no showers for the boaters who haul out. There is NO WAY on God's green earth that I will work all day long on my boat without a hot cleansing shower when I'm pau!! So, perhaps I can bribe a boater at Keehi for a shower key or something
