KUROSHIO CURRENT AND ITS EFFECT ON THE WEATHER David Kelly | Owner, Hawaiian South Shore I’d never heard about the Kuroshio Current until a couple of days ago.

HOLIDAYS WERE LONESOME David Kelly | Owner, Hawaiian South Shore The support when you are underway on a ship between shipmates was something that kept your sanity, especially during the holidays. I was in the Navy prior to coming to Hawaii. Our home Port was in Yokosuka, Japan. During my time aboard (4 years), we were mostly out to sea. The longest we were in our home port was 3 months.
