    Maybe the technicians are up there working on the satellite.

    Last fix on your AIS was on the 7th in Annette Inlet.

    Same place AIS off to conserve power. Both Navionics and Anchor Alarm on the iPhone had me in the middle of salt Spring for about 10 minutes. As I said strange.

    After 3 days anchored and not dragging an inch I was confident I haven’t moved - but used the MK1 eyeball to be sure.

    Makes you wonder about that old adage to always believe your instruments.

    That was in flying Michael not boating.
    I think.

    @Stu Jackson was kind enough to give me his miserable cold. I’ll take 2 days to get to Everett and a comfee warm bed

    I would have thought the healthy Fresh Oysters would have helped with the medicinal needs of a Nordic Sailor.

    Then maybe they did and that’s why the end of a great voyage. New rigging, an adventure in a Spring storm, rendezvous with a sailing friend, sounds like a cruise fulfilled.

    Maybe you could drop it off at customs on your way home. I think Stu is taking this sharing thing too far.

    Be grateful there isn't an import tax on bringing that back.
    There probably should be, though.

    Sorry about that sharing. Good idea. The bad news is that it will still be with you when you do get home. Safe journey.

    Our boy is making good time. The tide currents have just changed into his favor. Now if he is a good a calculator as Stu on his fuel consumption he should be in Everett by tomorrow PM.

    Welcome home. Hope you feel better soon. It'll take a couple of more days. Cory says to apologize to you, too. :)
    Truly "The Bail Cruise." All four of us did, on this one. No more naming until the blinkin' cruise is done. Please...:)

    Naming a cruise... you could call it:
    • The Flu Cruise
    • (your part) The Hide from Force 8 Winds cruise
    • (for me) The Out and Back in a Day Cruise... Really that was a "Day Sail"
    • Terry - Where is Every Body Cruise...
