Mt Yasur Volcano !

At long last we made it to the famous Mt Yasur volcano on Tanna Island.  Rather an easier access than Ambrym as it is set up for tourists and it is an amazing natural show.  The photos do not do it justice as the deep bass explosions with each eruption could not be captured on video let alone photos.

Boom !

But before you can see the volcano you have to get there.  A lot more comfortable than the hike on Ambrym but perhaps still not in accordance with health and safety standards in some countries.

And then the (rather bored looking) chief is asked for permission.  He is not actually a chief but this part of Vanuatu is set up for the tourists so it is a demonstration of the customs.

The chief pondering the request while holding the gift of kava root.

10 Month Maintenance Update

I have been doing six month maintenance updates but I missed updating this when we were in the Marshall Islands.  This blog shows what maintenance we did over the last ten months since the yard visit in Fiji.  Most of the items are the usual preventive and corrective maintenance you expect on a boat in full time use and covering plenty of miles.

Lots of hands now to help with projects.  In this case, changing the engine oil with a drill-driven pump.
The larger projects include:

- New oversized autopilot drive and keeping the old one as a spare.
- New house bank batteries - 940 Amp Hours - we had hoped this could wait until New Zealand but alas they were just not going to make it there.  We had forgotten how nice batteries that hold their charge can be.
- New windlass bank batteries
- New battery charger that accepts power anywhere in the world.  This allows us to plug into shore power for the first time since Mexico and can be powered our new little Yamaha generator.
- Reorganisation of some of the electronics at the chart table now that the antique Trimble mostly died

Here is the dump from the spreadsheet with some of the columns deleted for clarity.  It can be a bit misleading as some of the items are only a few minutes work - takes longer to get the tools out than to do the job - and some took a week to complete.
