Cool head required. I don't think a catamaran would of handled this one too well.

& about 6 - double scotch & dry & that was just to - 're-start his heart' . I'm on Jeanne's side - 'I'm outa here' - 'I'd druther be somewhere else' is what I felt.. Like the desert, or a mountain-top.

Now 'bright-eye' oops mean "Lighthouse' - I opened the window & went sideways (is there any other way to go - even when anchoring in 'silly spots'? EH?) & opened up the 'youtube' window & scrolled down to - 'Honeymoon crosses the ocean' by sethhynes. Now there's the best advertisement for both cruising & multihulls that I've seen in a long time. Oh & not in the 'southern-ocean' either. Smiling, happy, joyful people (I'm not going near any of those 3 subjects - I'm far to young) great weather, good navigation techniques, safe practices shown in sailing c/w a positively great attitude by all on board. Don't we all wish that it was like that all the time, especially when anchoring - 'in tight places' - which we have all done, eh (U-2) ?? It was a great story (the anchor, then loose sleep, then move again, etc - ha, ah) though & I'm sure we will all learn from the 'bother' it caused. Still would like to apply for the job the 'girls' are pretending to offer. PS All you cruising-mob - The Southport Bar is really like that & Coffs Harbour is even more tricky - but was far to busy trying to stay off the 'breakwall' to take pictures. Ciao all & great winds whatever is your desire, 'geri-hat-trick' -Jeanne -
can I get that job - please -please - - huh - please - I even bring my own Vodka & coke!

Something strong in the 40% group would be needed after either of those experiences. Yes, James the Honeymoon over the pacific is a very good reason to let loose the lines and go.

i think, somewhere, somehow; everyone will experience this and recover from the experience.

and to chill and have a cold beer in hand after this, would just be normal. like the sea, it takes, it gives.
