Final destination is Florida.
Still in Santa Barbara as the weather is predicted to be nasty today. I have charts
and can hook up a GPS
to the computer while using the TV as an extra monitor. When I discovered the GPS charts
deleted, we were already seeing harbor enterance markers. I know now to trust my instincts and break out some form of charts when entering any harbor. I hadn't studied Half Moon Bay closely enough as we were not planning on stopping there.
What we ran over was likely eelgrass. We were in 150+ feet of water at the time, and it was floating just below the surface in a large tangled ball 30+ feet in diameter. Fastbottoms will be happy to hear I can not recommend running over eelgrass as a way to clean your hull.
Next stop Ventura tomorrow.
Fair winds & Following seas,
