    Pearl Harbor Day, F/V Pacific Paradise, Molokai

    2017-12-07 Pearl Harbor Day (never forget), removal of the Pacific Paradise (F/V) and Molokai Is. ...

    A typical late Fall frontal system passed yesterday (gale force winds, 20-25' seas). And then ... today is dead calm, weather moves fast here. However, still reporting twenty foot surf on north facing shores but, it's glassy and nice offshore. Decided to cross the Kaiwe Channel and spend a few days fishing.

    Leaving Waikiki. Typical Fall morning, south shore is calm and the sun's declination is low. (14) days until winter solstice. That's smog over PHNL.

    A super Moon created a super high tide (for Hawaii) and after (2) months the F/V Pacific Paradise was freeded from Waikiki ! I took this photo and wished her good riddance.

    Random YouTube video of the M/V Pacific Paradise:



    No wind but a 12' north swell made for an easy (but spooky) trip to "Penguin Banks":

    Decided to preclude staying on Molokai and returned home with the catch. Summary from Garmin InReach:

    I thought that you said the seas were only 20 - 25 feet? That 341 footer must have been a doosy.

    Yep, definitely glad I was in deep water ha ha ha!!! A biblical event almost like Lituya Bay's 1722' wave in '58.

    Seriously:
    I am guessing that the little GPS beacon the Garmin InReach uses doesn't use WAAS? Remember SatNav? The SatNav unit required heading, estimated position and altitude! And it took 48-72 hours to warm up. Hopefully, InReach will track better in the future. Thank you for pointing the error out.
