Downer, sounds like the work of 1st Bn, 3rd Marines.... Gotta feel for those fellahs, I think this is their third trip since I started working back on the Big Isle.

IMHO go with the Zoddy, you can launch at Honaunau, Road to the Sea, Milolii, Mahu Kona, Manuka, etc. etc. etc. where your 10 minutes troll away from some excellent dive spots.

Pallet shipping cost $70.00 last year this time. You can get free pallets in Hilo at the Harley Joint but it's worth beefing them up with pop-rivets before you use them.

"G-Van" container was about $120.00 two years back, you can get two bikes in plus all your gear and stash.

It's the Most F5orite Time of the Year!!!
