Ok, we've had all winter preparing and have now had our first excellent night cruising and discovered we have forgotten.....

 

In our case it is the plug for the sink! Tried using a tapered skinfittting bung but keeps getting knocked out. And tea towels.

BTDT. Solved by wrapping a bottle lid in a piece of tea towel. Heaps of choice of bottle lids on most beaches.

More fun to sit and empty a bottle :razz:

So this week I sailed pork chop up from tauranga amd the mrs was going to drive up to meet me here for our week sailing holiday.

 

After meeting wifey in westhaven and loading up the boat I noticed that we were short one of our gear boxes. The kids had their stuff but the mrs had left all of her spare clothes in tauranga! Thankfully a quick trip to the warehouse got her sorted. Im just stoked we hadnt left yet.

Ahhh haha getting into the long shelf-life food and I discover I failed to bring a can opener. No tomatoes for me :(

 

Also forgot ice during my departure but fortunately realized it right when I got to Westhaven, and could swing by the cafe at Z Pier.

We left halfmoon bay in a rush one friday afternoon last year -wife loaded the boat up nicely and i went straight to the boat from work so in dress pants, shoes and shirt - kicked off the shoes and drove boat out to Rakino to get there before it got dark - anchored and enjoyed a beer (which the wife had even loaded in the fridge).

 

Come bed time i stroll downstairs into the cabin and look for my clothes bag... Hmmmm

Wife had packed hers, and sons (8) not mine, i asked and she cracked up laughing as she realised that she had unloaded the boot but left my bag in the back seat of the car...

 

Saturday morning quick trip back to marina to get some clothes for the long weekend!
