Good job! It's always something isn't it? My OB did the same thing to me while transiting from the launching marina to my mooring this spring. I just recently heard that I should leave the main up until I moor just in case the iron wind dies. That makes sense, but to have it up for the hour plus transit up from the mouth of the river, flopping around and spoiling my view...

We'll see.
