Towing Floating Dock To Savusavu

The weather had remained settled for a few days, so it looked like the right time to tow a set of Floating Docks down from the Koro Sun Resort, to be relocated at the Copra Shed Marina.

What a beautiful morning it was, we left our dock at 6.30 & headed along the coastline for Koro Sun Resort.

There was a slight swell as we came pass the Airport, hopefully it will die off for the tow back.
It took us about a hour to get to where we were to pick up the Dock, just outside the reef at Koro Sun Resort Marina.

After a half hour wait, we saw the start of the Docks appear from the Koro Sun Marina, out towards the reef entrance.

Once out pass the reef we were able to attach the tow rope. & after a few adjustments we were on our way back to Savusavu,

It was a very slow trip back, thankfully there was a slight breeze blowing to keep us cool, the swell was still there & sometimes it felt like the boat was about to stop with the weight it was pulling

Once back inside the harbour & close to the Copra Shed. we handed the tow over to 2 smaller boats for the final tow into the anchorage, & tie up at the wharf.
