Stay safe mate. We are all thinking of you out there. At least the strong winds are pushing you in the right direction.

STAY SAFE BUDDY
Be safe – no other words to say
Keeping a vidual you can do this!
Sorry fat fingers I meant “visual”.
Not surprised you’ve been having a rough time. 40 kt winds and 6+ m waves in that little boat. You couldn’t pay me enough… Looks like you will get a break from the wind soon. Hang in there, buddy.
you are a legend already – no need for more heroics to prove it. Just do what you need to and hunker down.
Thanks for the updates Axe. You are so brave. Keep at it. Praying for you constantly – you will get through. Godspeed ! Geoff and Heather Rodley New Plymouth
Never forget how the exhilaration of conquering one of the toughest challenges is going to feel. I am with you all the way and sending you all the positive energy I have.
Keep it it mate, you can do it!! Very impressive and very brave! Following you every day and keeping fingers crossed for good winds and currents. Cheers DB and fam.
We’re all thinking about you and praying for your safety – as you say this too shall pass
Focus on the project goal & your family, it takes a rare type of inner strength to prevail, only a few can do it, grit ur teeth and embrace the challenge, you will make it. Cheers Russ.
