Re: Labor Day Weekend

Oh, forgot to mention, had my first grounding on the way back to the Bay from Mill Creek.

Went from 6 ft to 5 ft to 3 ft real fast as we approached the channel exiting Mill Creek. As soon as I saw the 5ft reead, I did a hard turn but it was too late. I threw it in reverse without much luck, then put it back in gear with full throttle. Was able to slowly motor myself off.

All in all, not a bad experience. Was expecting much worse.
