Mother nature certainly has a way of evening up the score. Have you ever watched a stink pot on a mooring with a 6 inch wake in the harbor?

A couple of weeks back, we were returning from Block Island. The forecast was for seas 1 to 3 ft. While I should have known better with 20 kt winds out of the East, actual seas were 6 to 8 ft. As we finally start heading into the Bay and calm waters, we are passed by several stink pots at full throttle heading toward open water. They must have no idea what they are in for and I just grin thinking about it. Wish I could have turned around to watch.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
