After 3 days of cleaning Tahina’s two hull bottoms of the months of growth, we finally got back to our normal speeds again. Almost 1.5X faster than before the cleaning! We were so happy seeing 7.8 knots under one motor instead of 5 knots.
We finally left Komodo Island area this morning and are sailing west towards Lombok on an overnight run. We plan to stop there for some information, and possibly for a tour or two before going to Bali.
I have a weak Internet connection – so again the photos will have to wait until we get to Lombok or Bali. But, we have some great underwater photos to share in addition to the dragons. Yesterday I went on another dive that was the best dive I’ve every done. Fantastic fish, shark, coral, etc. Stupendous!
More to come…here’s a map of our current position:
