nothing like a rough day working on a boat

Well today i installed some gfo shaft packing on a boat. of coarse we had to take the boat out for a test run.

the boat is a 27 IP, weather cloudy, temps mid 50's, winds by the weather on my phone on land where 14 mph on the water i would say 20 gusting higher ( i would bet winds where 25 or higher for a while ). we where under full main, and a 125 genny, we dipped the rail pretty good a few times, one time we dipped the saloon windows.

one of the best parts was showing the owner of the boat that his boat can actually back up under control. his boat is in a tight spot with the wind directly away from the exit, so i kind of had to back out as the front of the boat was blow around as we left the slip. the owner docks his boat the hardest way possible. he drives in then gets off the boat then turns it around by hand so he can drive out in forward.
