    Ants, you are welcome to sleep aboard Surprise! In fact, you might have the boat to yourself since I live down the road and usually go home Saturday night.

    Are you planning a longer return, perhaps by way of the PNW? That's what I'd like to do - though 2022 is more likely than 2020 for that diversion.

    This is a larger version of the P14 I was drooling over. It's a lot heavier (300# ish). On one hand it can handle rougher water, but on the other hand it would be harder to right from a capsize.
