Tell Hannah that she looks like a great skipper!

uspirate, no lifelines on my V-21 either, too small I guess. Cute little thing, looks like she's having a blast.

No. I have thought about adding them and probably should as I have started sailing in bigger water. No major crossings in my plans, but that bit of water over Hannah's shoulder isn't always that calm. In all other directions I was within 2 or 3 miles of shore and most of the time I was within a mile of at least one shore. Out on that horizon it is a long way out to Hatteras and Ocracoke and through the gap between them its even further to Africa...

I did think about stricter safety guidelines. I should probably clip in all the time when I am the only adult. We had great weather and there was abundant safety boat presence - USCG, state and local enforcement were all around making sure boats were licensed, captains were sober and fishing regulations were being followed. A few people didn't have a very nice holiday.
