This wasn't as special a moment as it could have been.. we shared an anchorage in Jervis Inlet with Serrafyn, the Pardey's famous engineless 30 footer - but did not chance to meet them. We did meet and chat briefly with Lin weeks later at a local wooden boat show.



The next morning we watched them patiently drift/sail out of the harbour out into Malaspina Strait.. took quite a while.

Actually I believe that is their second boat, "Taliesin". Might that have been about 7 years ago? I encountered them around that time drifting/sailing in the same area while on my friend's 76ft mega-yacht. At the time I was a 100% Pardey deciple and wanted to yell to them that I have all their books and that they are my heroes. Of course yelling that, to the Pardeys, who are drifting on their engineless cutter, from the deck of a 76ft boat going 17kts burning 3gal/mile of diesel, and nearly swamping them with our wake...... well..... I instead chose not to make myself seen.

Something different, last week, Gondolas in Venice at rush hour. I can tell you, I was really impressed with the way those guys manage to steer those beautiful boats with only one oar in the middle of those frightening steel barges.

Faster- do you happen to know if they "drifted" their way up to P. Louisa? Just wondering how, or if, they negotiate rapids/slack engineless. I would think that many of the best places to see in our neck of the woods would be extremely difficult, or darn near impossible, without our iron gennies.

One would think getting though Malibu would be rather too exciting engineless... I suppose they'd give that one a pass (or hop on a Beaver at Egmont)
