Hidden away in the Panmure Basin I found the lovely launch Lanakai owned by Capt James O'Donnell. Several electronic changes had been made since I was last here 4 years ago. Into the basin we went to swing the compass in fairly restricted waters and was good to watch a competent helmsman at work. The compass was soon readjusted and I could spend a bit of time admiring the new woodwork etc. Always a pleasure to go out on the Lanakai. It was a lovely warm summer day on 12 February 2011 and the boat should be fine til next time.
