The Sea Hag is a fictional character owned by King Features Syndicate. She is a tall, masculine looking witch featured in comics/cartoons as a nemesis to the character Popeye. The Sea Hag was created by Elzie Crisler Segar in 1929 as part of the Thimble Theater comic strip.....from wiki

Smart choice, the Pacific was horrible this year. My wife & I survived 2 storms & 5 gales before having damage rounding Point Conception off Calif. At Conception we found 45-50knts of wind & 12' confused sea's, was'nt fun, had to heave to for 9 hours. Then ran a double reefed main only making 9 knts hull speed. Now we have to haul out and have our Haida trucked back to Oregon. We counted 9 boats of 40' and larger receive major damage this year. My Haida out lasted many of these larger vessels and never took green water. The damage was fairly minor, but to expencive to repair in So. Calif.. Hope next year will be better for you. If you are going to round Point Conception, give me a yell prior, I know a better way learned from commerical fishermen. Crusing guides are dead wrong...........Michael.........

Re: Cruising on $500 per Month . . .

Part of the traditional Sea Hag's job (not the Popeye version) is to haunt men who hurt women and break hearts as well as warn women off those kind of men... so heads up you hound dogs!

Re: Cruising on $500 per Month . . .

Winter weather isn't here yet, but it is coming early. A couple weeks ago we had 35knot winds with 50knot gusts (it wasn't a storm, just windy for a couple of days, happens about once a week in fall and winter)
from the S blowing up Puget Sound, that is fall weather, winter gets really exciting.

Zee, Mazatlan looks like the place for me to get some work done, no?

Cheap beer, fish tacos and flat chicken will keep the budget in order too?

Can't wait see you next month!
