Dogs were in sensory perception overload. We came across 5 different pods of dolphins today.

Hit some big waves today. A lot of 5 foot and even 7 footers. But all pretty rounded and a good 7-8 second period.

Coming back into the marina after 5 hours of beating it.

Pee wee zee,
See all those sailboats in your pic? They handle way better than little stink pots in ocean waves and swells! Those sail boats got some ballast and sail mass, so don’t shake you up so much, they don’t beat you up. And they are way cooler,… chicks dig sailboats, not so much wee little putt putts that slam down on every wave.




Woke!

We run out and back to the islands before those blow boats get their first sail up.

We did another trip out to the islands. Love it out there. Did about 10 miles in the dark coming back into the marina. Always fun to run at night.

Track we ran yesterday.

Left from Ventura Marina, landed on Santa Cruz Island at Potato Harbor, went West to Pelican Bay, then North to Santa Barbara Harbor before running back down the coast to Ventura.

84 total miles.

41 gallons of gas, lets say at $6 a gallon comes to around $246. I know there are many more expenses to operating a boat but for $246 what can you do for so much enjoyment? For a family of 4 you cant go to any professional ball game, go to a top name amusement park, hell you can barely be able to go to dinner and a movie for $246.

The point is that for $246 you and your family will be sitting around one day in the future and reminiscing about the boat trip you once took when the ball game or dinner and a movie will be long forgotten.

I am not belittling $246, its a lot of money but what isn't now days? One could always go for a walk, hike in the woods or many things that are free but being out on the water is special.

Shrimpie does not have nav equip. He uses his phone. I doubt he has a compass or paper map on his boat. What does he do when his phone battery dies or he drops/breaks it while looking up the ohio score and latest desantis tweet?

Goat, WG

Do both of you really get it up by calling people names? Have you ever sailed a 20-30 ft sailboat through 5 to 7 ft seas against the current coming down the coast and the wind most likely from 270 at 11 or so knots? How long and wet do you imagine 45 miles out and back would seem?

And never b-tch about off topic posts! You two are among the worst offenders!

Just saying you are among the worst offenders for off topic and name calling! Put the pipe down yourself!

Saying that you have no right to use pejoratives is in no way an endorsement of what they say! But it is an endorsement of their right not to be harassed by you for saying it!
