We love our boat!!! We took posession of her in Blane WA, on Wednesday June 27th. Then sailed across the Strait of Georgia
on the Thursday to the Gulf Islands and anchored in Ganges. We moved up to Pirates Cove, then to Nanaimo and stayed at a marina to clean her and get supplies. Then we sailed across the Strait again to Pender Harbor. We continued on and anchored at the Cooper
Islands. Then we rounded Sarah Point and finally made it to Desolation Sound and anchored in Grace Harbor where I deep sixed my dinghy motor
in 50 ft of water
. The next day found a free diver anchored close by and he retrieved it with some effort. I had it running for about three days,off and on, then it finally told me to "F" off and would run no more. We moved up to Tenedos Bay and my wife slayed some lingcod and snapper. Then we went up to Laura Cove and stayed two days. Desolation Sound is absolutely beautiful and the water
is about 75 degrees. We sailed back to Blaine the same way we came up and had the sail of our lives across the Strait of Georgia
with 20-30k winds under full sail!!I saw the speedo hit 9.4k once and we averaged 8.5. It was fun!! We arrived in Blaine on Friday the 13th and are now home waiting for crew to help deliver her down to Newport OR. We miis our boat terribly ...and can't wait to sail her again. All in all it was one hell of a shakedown cruise.
