Marty:

Yep, I know about the 22 knots rule. We'll see how it shakes out. If the wind is reasonable and expected to pick up, I'll go with a short course and try and get everyone home before things get ugly.

Jody:
We're OK with staffing for the RC duties. You are, of course, welcome to come with us. I'm planning on running the cabin heater!

Offer still stands to look at your starting problem. Hope's probably not going, so I expect to be at the marina before 9, trying to figure out what's going to happen.

Jody - good work, man. That sounds like a very rough day - and it sure seems you handled it well. Hope there's not too much damage. Hang in there, dude.

Marty, David and Jody sail an area that can get pretty rough depending on the winds and currents. Jody, I hope you get her runnin' soon.

Jody,

What is the word on HG? I saw here at Edmonds about 5 pm while having dinner with Sheryl. Winds were wicked about that time, HG was broadside at the dock to the wind, leaning at least 10 if not 15 degree with bare poles. Looked like a J-boat was ducked in too. Could not quite catch the name, as the transom was beyond finger pier a foot.

Looked at my boat, needed to tighten up stern dockline about 6-12" or there abouts. Then noticed I left the ST instruments on. Wind was showing 28-33, and I am slightly proteced to the south from covered moorage! I am sure it was more! The rollers were HUGE bouncing off the ferriesas they were coming and going from Edmonds to Kingston.

Marty

She drives me boat,

She will be there until tomorrow afternoon as I didn't venture up there today. Snow in the morning here. The afternoon storm conditions wouldn't of been conducive to working on the boat much less getting her back to Seattle. Lastly, I am recovering today as I am pretty stiff - kinda feel like my body was tossed around by a pro-wrestler.

David was kind enough to go down and check up on the boat for me this afternoon, tidy a few things up for prep of the storm, and hooked up his shore power cord to charge up the batteries. (Thanks again)

Unfortunately, she will heel in the high winds - bare poled, due to the high free board. Which ironically was probably another facet of why we didn't have more issues Sat...I just hope the fenders held out...

Tomorrow, I hope that I can get the engine turned over and verify that the prop wasn't damaged and see about getting her lifted to inspect the damage. I have a feeling it will be a long week.

Bubb, Marty,

That was a great video!! Must have been some racing!

Did anybody notice the bright red/orange jib on the boat (boats?) at about 3:30 or so in the clip? Was that a storm jib of some sort, or are bright headsails a new craze on the racing circuit?
