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! 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?
