New Addition to the Family

This here is the newest addition to the Kontoes Family. It is a 1976 16 foot tri-hull motorboat. It has a 70 hp 1975 Evinrude outboard motor and with 2 people, it planes quickly and maxs out at about 26 mph. So far I have gone out of Haleiwa, He'eia (Kaneohe Bay), and Waianae harbors. I SCUBA dove at Sharks Cove and the Mahi shipwreck from it. Aslo have gone out to Kaena Point and fishing buoy "R." Jackie and I have also taken it to Waimea Bay, swam to shore and jumped off the rocks. Plans for summer include overnight in Waimea! I also want to SCUBA at some more shipwrecks in Waikiki. It's been fun. Gotta love days off in Hawaii (got waves = go surf; no waves = time to fish and dive).

I took this pic of a whitetip shark coming straight for me, hoping it would did...about 3 ft from me!
