Paradise Cove would even up the trip a bit between days. The only time I've gone from MDR to CI was years ago on my '86 Cat 36 to get the bottom done (blisters) at Frank Butler's yard there (big discount). Since I was going alone, I left about 7 AM and motored most of the way. Just set the autopilot and set back reading the paper and listening to the radio. It was an easy trip. The coolest part was when a bunch of Navy jets took off out of Port Hueneme right over my head. Quite an experience. It's been foggy up here in the mornings lately, so watch for that. Have fun and congrats on your new boat. I now own a '91 Cat 36 (divorce...long story) and they are really great boats. I hope you enjoy yours.

Mike

Hi all, I just wanted to bring you up to date. I left Long Beach Harbor on Thursday, 5-27, at about 0800. I made an uneventful trip into the wind up to Paradise Cove in Malibu (7-8 hours). I saw some dolphins and several pilot whales on the way up. I anchored just outside the kelp in about 35 feet with a sand bottom.

There was a bit of a swell running so my "sheltered" anchorage wasn't. The wind came up in the afternoon and blew hard until after midnight. I got up several times to check the anchor and was treated to a beautiful full moon evening and early morning.

Pulled the hook and got underway by about 0630. Made it to Los Angeles County Line before wind started building on the nose. Almost 20 knots dead ahead when I made the Channel Islands Harbor. I found my new dock and cracked a beer.

The boat is beautiful and everything worked perfectly. I can't wait to get her out this week.

In my haste to get underway I forgot a few things like long pants (burrr), eating utensils, a pigtail for the generator, bait for catching dinner, and a toothbrush. Also, I was unable to recruit any crew, so I sailed solo (wearing my PFD, harness and tether).

Take care, Bill
