Second mate Kai mans the main hatch as Scarlette glides across the marina "seas"
on her rebuilt trailer before launching Sept. 21, 2008.
Scarlette had to be hauled
out of the water earlier this month as typhoon conditions were raised. The typhoon
missed Okinawa. (This time.) Kai took the helm (the orange roof building above his   
head is Seaside Restaurant) and quickly jumped inside following orders from the
captain when winds had Scarlette healing at about 28 degrees. The two hour
Voyage ended with Kai saying, "I want to go again. But next time can we ride a
power boat?"
