|No horizon this morning.|
|Rogue followed us up the Sound and passed us just before the Canal.|
|Moored in the Port Townsend Boat Haven.|
|This mornings www.MarineTraffic.com screen shot headed west in the Strait.|
1 pm update: So exactly the opposite conditions occurred from what i predicted at 11 a.m. The current continued to build and pushed us at about 2 knots but the Seas have flattened. And now we expect to make Neah Bay at 4 p.m.
The fog is still very thick. A short time ago we came across a radar target just one-quarter mile on the bow. we blew the fog horn to warn the small boat. Fortunately or unfortunately in this case, the Selenes have a very loud and LARGE sounding horn. Our blast, caught the small sportsfisherman off guard and he immediately pulled up his lines and was cranking his main engine just as we popped out of the fog. We easily turned to avoid him but I'm sure it wasn't a pleasant thrill. Later
9pm update: Its Gentleman Jim for Dick and Weisers for Alex snug in Makah Marina, a 60-foot boat in a 50-foot slip. Dined at WarmHouse Restaurant, not recommended. Rise tomorrow at 4am to round the Northwest corner of the Continental US. Well not exactly as we plan to shoot through "hole in the wall" going inside Tatoosh Island so technically won't be rounding the corner. Should be fun in the dark and fog. Tomorrow.
