It is really rather sweet the way you tacked yourself and your bilge keeler into that little creek. There is a lot to be said about little shallow draft boats that can do this kind of exploring. I have a little 14' center board boat I've done similar excursions with.
It was a bit of a misty/moisty sort of place

sweet is an odd word to use

but it is a long way from seven blokes clining to the windward rail while a racing yacht surges along at 12 knots that is for sure
