puddinlegs is on a distinguished road
A little background info, the wind went from about 10-15kts to 35 with gusts to 45kts within about 10 minutes with little warning. Don't know the whole story but heard much of the conversation between the CG and fireboat. The tow was transfered to the fireboat, and the sailboat was dropped off at Elliot Bay. Lucky day for the owner.
