Back to Kijro Blogging


It’s been a long time since I’ve added any items to this blog. Kijro is still in Sokehs Harbor, here in Pohnpei. About two weeks ago, the mooring parted and Kijro drifted ashore. A friend called me as soon as he saw the boat drifting away from the mooring area. I was able to get to her just as she “kissed” a jetty at a nearby marina under construction.¬†Serendipitously, the boat came to rest in an area that had more than 10 feet of water. I tied the dinghy painter onto the boat an towed it back into the harbor (providing entertainment to several folks watching from a hotel balcony above our home). As I towed Kijro out, I planned what I was to do, which was to anchor her. This worked well, and she is still at anchor. I’ve arranged to get a new, more secure mooring set before we leave here on May 18, for the U.S. and the U.K.
