Tomandchris thanks so much for all of the helpful tips and advice! We are very much looking forward to this weekend. I very much appreciate the reminder that we will be on "big" water (comparatively speaking) definitely going to throw a couple more gallons of fuel on the boat for just such an eventuality...but I hope we don't have to use it too much...it's loud and slow running the motor!

Re: Traverse Bay Area

This thread is making me homesick. Hoping for pix posted next week.

TomandChris are right - when you get to cruising and having a destination, your aim is generally to, you know, GET there. And often you want to get there at a certain time -- before dark, before the tide changes, before winter. We sail when conditions allow, we sail for recreation, but for moving our home from place to place, more often than not it's the engine.
