“Fire Up the Son of a Bitch, the Golden Gate is Passed!”

   So the Captain went below, with a can of ether, and so did fire up the son of a bitch! With apologies to Gilbert and Sullivan, I have done exactly that! The old Mercedes Marine Diesel runs like a Swiss watch. Tomorrow, our sea trials commence. Once ship shape, we intend to cross the straits of Jaun de Fuca, where in the channel to Seattle and Bremerton is heavy ship traffic. My friend Dave from “Swan” will pilot for me, and Tim, (93 years old tommorrow, and an Englishman to boot!) sailing behind in his 34′ “Dianna Lee”, will be the chase boat. Stay tuned. (quotation from “The Pirates of Penzance”, but yawl know that, right?)
