    Interesting device. It looks like antenna is embedded in top surface of unit. I don't see an external antenna in accessories. Do you think the device will operate inside the cabin? I know I was able...

    I was intrigued when I saw the pics from Dolphin Bill's Transback stopover in Catalina on his way to SD. It sure looked beautiful.

    Isn't it sweet to ride that current? I am always amazed at how fast you can go at full flood or ebb. During the big rains two years ago heading downriver I got up to 10Kts over the ground at about...
