Title: Nuku Hiva / diary

After 2 days of bliss we return to Baie de Taioa, the main town in Nuku Hiva to provision (3 grapefruit, 3 mangoes, 1 cucumber, 1 baguette and 12 eggs)and top up with diesel and butane before setting off on the next adventure. . . 550 nms to the Tuamotus.
All goes well until our dinghy (life support machine) gets stuck under a concrete jetty covered in barnacles. Some how or another Bob manages to get the dinghy and outboard most of the way back across the 1 mile of shark infested waters, to our boat, before it sinks.
