2004 Visitors

We had left Ocelot (and Arthur the cat) in Tahiti in September, 2003 while we went back to the US for a few months.  We returned the middle of January, 2004, having only 2 weeks to completely clean up Ocelot (you wouldn't believe how much a cat sheds, and what will grow in the tropics if you let it), repair what had broken while we were gone (boats, and crew, rot in port), and completely replace the headstay and service the roller gear.

We then had 8 weeks of back-to-back visitors!  Vince actually overlapped with Karen & Jon, but they chose that week to fly to Bora-Bora for some scuba diving.  We started out just shuttling back and forth between Tahiti and Moorea, but Bill's a sailor so we did lots of sailing with them, including our first-ever overnight passage with guests (under the full moon, with a delightful breeze wafting us along). Two of Sue's university buddies, Pam and Kathy, came down for a relaxing week in Bora-Bora, with an unexpected sail on a westerly wind back to Raiatea.

Our visitors in 2004 included:
