Jake of the islands

Just back from running the Vela Gulf… over and back.

Liapari is next to Vella la Vella…  remembered in WWII from Pappy Boyington and the Black Sheep Squadron that flew out of  Barakoma Airstrip, Just across on the main land from Liapari.

Jake is a real trooper. Smiles and hangs. As long as he is fed and watered regularly he is cool. The crossing of the gulf today was gnarly… As rough as I think is safe. Don’t think Jake appreciates the razor’s edge nature of running big seas in small boats. Once back in Gizo we had a good refueling session at the Gizo Hotel with ginger chicken and rice…  Jake is still with Don for a dusk fishing trip.

Did not take any picts with Jake in today but have this from today’s trip…
