Temerity is at last home from Hawaii and put back together, modulo putting on the main, a few minor electrical repairs, and some black marks on the port topsides. I’ve spent the last couple of chore-doing trips in taking off all the offshore gear, and for next season will have the e-rudder set up so that it can be theoretically deployable at sea without the unsightly frame constantly attached.
The shipping cost was brutal, as I knew it would be. I added up all the bills, and it came to $19,210.34. For those contemplating shipping their larger boats home from Hawaii, here is what you can expect.
