    I wouldn't try that ruse if you're within earshot of DM. I was always careful about that with Rags.

    9/26 has the slack before ebb at start time. 10/3 has the slack before FLOOD at 0900. After last year's debacle getting out the Gate, I agree with 9/26.

    But we'll miss you guys.

    My diver called at 0830, hoping I'd pull the plug so he wouldn't have to clean the hull. His compressor draws in the ambient air.

    For those not watching, Hedgehog made it past the Farallones before dark, a good thing. Now he's probably enjoying beans and tater-tots, or whatever solo sailors like to eat on passage.
