Comments As new owners, this is our first boat larger than a dinghy, we still have a steep learning curve but are loving the climb. We live in Sacramento, about 90 miles inland from Sausalito. We use La Storia as a weekend getaway and occasional weekday escape from Sacramento's summer heat and winter fog. We are fortunate to sail in one of the world's most beautiful and challenging sailing areas, San Francisco Bay. We planned a cruise down the coast to Monterey but bad weather and a malfunctioning depth gauge forced a cancellation. Maybe this coming spring we'll be able to make the trip.

Longest/Notable Voyage In 99 my wife and I sailed the boat from Portland Me. to New Bern NC. It was a 40 day trip as we where in no hurry. Both of us had a wonderful time, except for the first day. The engine overheated and had to be towed by Boat US, the head sail on that day ripped also. Thank God for boat insurance. The tow which would have cost 450 dollars cost nothing because of the insurance. After that day the trip was almost uneventful, with exception of the heat.

444 Makani Kai (1987) -- Santa Barbara, CA

Owners Sue & Earle Howey (earle*spam-no-more*silcom.com) and Ann & Chuck Barnes
Purchased March 1987
Boat Name Entry Since I learned to sail in Hawaii, all my boats (but one) have had Hawaiian Names. My first boat was named Kapu Kai which in Hawaiin means Keep off the Water - but that's another story.
Makani is Hawaiian for wind, and Kai means ocean or sea. So we like to think of Makani Kai as being driven by the spirit of the sea winds.

Comments We have added a bow anchor roller extension, stronger bow cleat, additional 35-ga. fuel tank, microwave oven and radar.  We modified the salon table with a drop-leaf on a piano hinge, and added a storage compartment behind the head. Since our voyage into the Sea of Cortez in 1990 our sailing has been limited to the Santa Barbara Channel with frequent week-ends to Santa Cruz Island, and occasional voyages to Santa Catalina, Santa Rosa and San Miguel. Makani Kai has been an ideal boat for us.  It is perfect for coastal cruising and island trips from a few days to a week or more.  With some modification and expanded capacity is was quite adequate for the 1,000-mile cruise to Cabo San Lucas and proved capable of handling more severe conditions than her crew really cared for.
