It’s a gorgeous, cool day with 9 kt northeast breeze through the harbor. Dog peed on command on the foredeck, so we can take our time dropping the dinghy and just relax for awhile.
Good to hear Fido is catching on.

Would love to be out today. Tried to convince Nurse Cratchet but only got a stare. Tomorrow we will visit Haleakula. She may allow me to motor some to knock any potential slime buildup in the last two weeks off, we will see.


Dead downwind.....Can you rig a preventor on the toe rail ?that way you never have to worry about an accidental gybe when the rocky Rollie’s hit from behind.

I forget , on your Catalina , is it a tall rig? Swept back spreaders?
