Taking the ‘naut out for another spin

Leaving February 14th for Duke point from Swartz bay. Early morning ferry to the Gulf Islands drops us off into a tumultuous day of tailwind-crosswind-tailwind! The marine forecast was almost bang on.

The boat surprised me completely; I first found her slightly squirrley (with a heavy following sea and tailwind). But once I had settled down into the boat I completely forgot I was in an inflatable. Tracked well, forgiving and stable…. Tough conditions for any boat let alone an inflatable, but the ‘naut continues to win me over.

Tomorrow brings 45 knot winds and rain. We will hunker down on provost island and get some reading done
