The Shanty Spring Open

Just a quick post. We’re still here. Still having fun. Its just been a busy few months. San Diego actually had some rain too. Anytime we get rain, you really want to stay out of the water. Imagine the filth of 6 months rolling into your nice little man made cesspool. If you can do that, you can imagine Mission Bay.

Anyway, its been nice lately, and Lindsay and I finally got to take the Potter 19 out. Grandma and Grandpa watched the youngin’ so Linds could finally relax a bit. I think she had a nice day on the water.

It was a relatively windy day, with a steady breeze out of the west. Perfect for sailing under the main alone. According to OpenCPNย we were cruising along at a nice leisurely 2.5 to 3 knots. Not too shabby really for the Potter.

Just a nice long run along the outside of Fiesta Island.

Looking at the chart, I’m a little surprised we didn’t scrape bottom a couple of times.

A beautiful day, and a chance to test the gear. Everything went pretty well.

Unless you’re a jetskier. If you’re a jetskier, get off the dang ramp when you’ve got the boat on. The ramp is not a place to work on your boat! Come on! It’ll be a long year otherwise ๐Ÿ™‚

More to come on this set up later!
