Shark is safe to cook and eat. However the meat may have a a very high ammonia content, because the pass urine though their skin. Soaking in milk can allieviate that. Some sharks have higher ammonia content.Mako, lemon, blacktip, hammerhead. are the best to eat. You also have to watch for parasites in shark meat

Thanks for the video.
Yea, the dog manages to control herself pretty well.

LOL.. We didn't end up eating the bait. We have a lot of food aboard, so we were good. We caught a two foot shark, but he broke free just as we were bringing him aboard. Would have made for some great shark steaks. They're one of our favorites.

We never made it to Catalina. I have several other past videos of sailing there, but this time we decided to sail straight back because of the lack of wind.

It looks like it will be an easy fix, but I don't have the part. Our mechanic is a certified Yanmar mechanic, so he can get the parts needed. Hope it won't be down for more than a week or two.

The wife and I agreed that from here on we will never use the engine for more than just getting in and out of the slip, and if we can sail in, we'll do that.

Great video Tom! I was afraid your dog was going to try to get one of those porpoise. He wanted to jump in. Best of luck going forward. Hope the engine is OK.

Thanks!

Yes, the dog has her life vest. We always have her tethered, but when things become rough we also put her vest on her.
