Mission bay to San Diego bay and back in a day.

Post by Bobsquatch » Mon Sep 02, 2019 12:02 pm

I motored from Mission bay then sailed all the way to Imperial Beach marine reserve. I came across a group of kayakers who warned me too look out! I said, I know it's only 2' deep. It's a Macgregor! 8) I had my rudders kicked up and the swing keel barely in the water making 4kts. They were amazed. I turned and came alongside them to chat a bit while we left the area. They were in performance kayaks with long skinny rudders, I could get shallower than them. They actually pulled ahead for a while till it got deep enough to drop the rudders and keel and I took off. it was getting late so I doused the sails and headed back. It was well after dark when I got back to my slip but show me another boat that could do all of that in a day. I also stopped for fuel, had lunch at Point Loma Seafoods and cleaned the hull. Busy day. :)

Did you notice if that Ketch was still stuck in the flats by the car pier in South Bay?
