Just one comment that I noticed I didn't hear the ch 13 bridge to bridge call to the car carrier to state your intentions while passing. Just curious?

Peter,

Thanks for the comment.

As far as I know that is not something that is done/customary in the San Pedro port. I've not seen it done on other boats, or on the boat I crewed on, while passing. We always monitor channel 16 and sail outside the shipping lane, if possible. It has never been an issue.
