    South Sound Cruise-2017

    We're putting together a quick, one day outing that launches in Olympia next Monday, June 26th. Weather permitting, but for now the forecast is in the 70's and some sun. Hopefully boats will be hitting the water 10-10:30 and out by 5pm.
    So far, I'm committed as well as Captain Tim, with the 31 Saratogan, as well as Kelly. Any more ?P1000459.jpg

    Boy, here is your chance boys, Dig those boats out and Hit the water !!!

    My daughter Zoanna came down to Oly for Father's day and took me to lunch. Then we took the boat out for a cruise around South Sound. She docked the boat at Boston Harbor fuel dock with a little coaching. We ran up to the entrance to Hammersley Inlet (Shelton) and shut down the engines, enjoyed the afternoon, some music, beer, flat calm water and lots O' sun. Had a couple seals hanging around the boat.
    Great day on the water. Got a couple videos uploaded to Youtube. I'll be editing them together, but they are available individually now....

    I already have a boat full, so Monday the 26th is going to happen.

    Here's a link to one of the videos: https://youtu.be/Nl06X48GA24

    Alas, work for me. But I'll be out this weekend. Supposed to be in the 80s.

    I'm unfortunately in the crowd with John. Wish I could come out but will be working... Also, I have some work to do on the Chris Craft before next month, we have a blockage in our port exhaust cooling system and she is running hot enough to start melting the exhaust hose!

    For logistical reasons, looks like a revised departure time from Swantown of 9am ! Just 2 boats so far. Can't someone have eye problems, as in, I can't see going to work on a nice day ?
