I had decide to ignore superstitions, and left for a trip home on Friday 13. On the way home I almost got run over by a barge, ran aground and then ended up with 40kt head winds, 10-15ft. waves and a strong tide coming behind and from the side as I crossed the San Juan de Fuca straits causing a few wave close to spreader height. I never liked the name of my boat and was was told she (the boat) will tell me when she is ready and what to name her. I have found a new name, but will wait before untill I get all the refit I am doing done and will follow the proper procedure.
