But if you make it up here, I'll meet you at the same dock and we can eat.

(Fortunately, the real folks who helped me off the dock will be able to describe me and my crew, and state what, if anything, was unusual about that crew.)

Matey, I know where Port Townsend is; I was there on May 5 around midday. IIRC, there was a strong SE'ly blowing.
As for a description, the skip was looking a tad dreadful as if he was concerned about a lack of experience or something; the crew, while charming, was clearly inexperienced in helping a boat off the dock with an on-shore breeze.

Never mind, if you don't want to believe, it's OK. Not sure when I will be there next but if it's blowing like the other day, let me know if you are heading out and I can talk you crew through it - if she is still in the loop

All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangereous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. T.E. Lawrence
