Great job severnmd, Congrats, It just keeps getting better and better. That first step is the hardest but by the end of the season you'll feel like a natural.
My first solo I also came in toooo fast under aux power bow first and slammed the dock so hard it shook the barnies off. I think I woke everyone up whether they were sleeping or not.
Still, there is nothing like a day on the water alone.
A people that values its privileges above it's principles will soon lose both.
