I just got off the phone with Rob Barrel in Fiji. He's the owner/manager of the boat. It's off the reef and tied up at a local wharf and is due to be towed later today back to Fiji.

Damage appears minimal (though the experience for the passenegers was one they'll apparently never forget) and Rob has scheduled drydock repairs to begin as soon as the boat reaches Fiji. He anticipates being back in the water sometime around September 8.

I also suggested to him, following the lead of Truth Aqautics when the Conception was wrecked, that he post updated info on his website ( http://www.naia.com.fj/ )and he said he'd try ot put that at the top of his list.
