Truth be known, I was trying to down play the injuries so as not to stress the girls. My wife Julie was pretty calm but Eileen was very upset about the whole situation. I will admit to some concern when an hour after the incident Chris looked like he had two knee caps! Being the guy that I am, my advice was to walk it off and keep it loose.

The VHF radio was busy on Sunday with a boat telling me to "Fall off" so that I can get a "Picture with the Power Plant off your stern." I of course refused and held my course. The other vessel was required to fall off in order to shoot a picture of our vessel with a major power plant on the horizon. He said Sway and CD would love it. I have no idea what that crazy dude was talking about.
