Now it's possible to do some real cooking aboard without pulling our hair out. This morning the wind was up by 9 AM. We beat out of the Magothy and then sailed on a broad reach out into the bay and jibed into the river. It was an amazing sailing day, especially before the cloud cover started to roll in around noon.

I also have to say the soda blasting and bottom job I did over the winter/spring is proving to be worth every penny. The speeds we were seeing all weekend under motor and sail were remarkable compared to before even when freshly repainted. The boat just feels lighter and more sprightly now.
Sorry we missed you guys. Glad all that work on the bottom showed big results./ Cant wait till the diver gives Haleakulas " bottom " a wipe.

Having propane is a great idea. See you and Sharon soon.
