    Almost 11 mph? I didn't know Olson 30s could go that fast. Wow.

    Ugh, this brings back unpleasant memories. I've been glued to his tracker each evening. It had looked like he would make the turn by midnight. By the haste he's making, perhaps he won't have to deal for long with this rough part

    The Olson 30 has such a narrow entry on the bow that Shad is surfing through the wave tops. Does he have a periscope fitted to the cabin roof ?
