We met up with Mr. and Mrs "Faster" in Lund on our way back down. Faster was most impressed with my idea of using polypropolene line for sheets and halyards so they won't get in the prop, as I'm always dragging them behind the boat anyway. He said I should do it
Had a baby seal adopt the boat our last day in Roscoe Bay. We could hear him calling in the bay early in the morning and when I got up to see what the ruckus was all about, evidently he thought the noise inside our boat was a signal, because he was soon directly under the hull. We could hear him call underwater and then we heard him nursing on the side. He did this until we pulled anchor and left. It was kind of sad, as there were still dirty spots on the hull that he hadn't sucked clean yet.
Sad indeed. We just returned from our annual Gulf/San Juan Cruise. We witnessed the same thing at Ganges. A pup trying to nurse a boat. The owner reported it to the coast guard station and some wildlife folks came and got it.
Gee td, its dang near warmer down under than here in the NW! Not sure what the high is predicted to be today, but from the looks outside, probably mid 70's....hope there is some wind tonight, other wise RC will be BORING!
