Re: New Boat owner moving boat to Anacortes

It sounds like a good trip, I'm glad that it went well.

In that section of the Swinomish you really need to watch the range markers. That is also the only place that we've touched bottom, thankfully it was soft mud. It did remove some bottom paint (but we were scheduled to haul out and paint anyway).

I'd recommend finding a sailing instructor who could take you out on their boats for a few lessons, then maybe do a 1:1 lesson with your boat to help you figure out your extra rigging.
