Re: Catalina Island January 2013 - False Start

That was great! I'm freezing in the east now (New Hampshire) but I lived aboard for a while at Newmarks in Wilmington . . . used to go to the Chowder Barge regularly . . .I miss the car carriers and all, I'd wake up in the morning and see an "office building" was moved in over night . . .

Happy New Year. Love watching your videos always informative and humorous. We don't get to do much this time of year in the NE unless your are a Frost biter. So we live vicariously thru folks like you.
Just one comment that I noticed I didn't hear the ch 13 bridge to bridge call to the car carrier to state your intentions while passing. Just curious?

Nice! I'm planning on over to Catalina on Tuesday. Hoping the weather cooperates!

Peter,

Thanks for the comment.

As far as I know that is not something that is done/customary in the San Pedro port. I've not seen it done on other boats, or on the boat I crewed on, while passing. We always monitor channel 16 and sail outside the shipping lane, if possible. It has never been an issue.

Chowder Barge has become one of our favorites. It's nice to sail/motor around and tie up for dinner.

True... We have not had to reef on this boat before, so we decided it best not to crawl around on the deck in 8-10 foot seas at night.

There are about five more videos in this series that I have uploaded. They're all on Youtube. I didn't want to waste a bunch of posts here on just our stuff.

Where are you headed? We managed to drop anchor in a few of the coves while there. Caught a lobster, too! That's in one of the later videos in this series.
