Charts Hawaii, The Big Island Scalawag Logo

August 14, 1998 
After a few weeks in paradise, the crew is finally well-rested and doing well.  Although they cannot seem to wean themselves from technology and are searching for a modem that works with a pay phone so they can  download their e-mail and check the latest price of PSFT.  [Editor's note:  Is this not what they were trying to retire from?] 

On other fronts, the Scalawag is slowly getting back into shape, having her bottom cleaned, halyards re-run,  diesel scrubbed and polished, and gennicker fixed.  The 'Wag is traveling at a leisurely pace from Hilo to Kona and trying to neither break any speed records, nor any more equipment.  [Editor's note:  When you're retired, why hurry?]
