Heath worked on his thesis while
I for the first time tried the dinghy and paddled along the shoreline. Because we
heard the weather might be shifting during the night we decided to motor over
to South Twin Island, which only took 10 minutes.
Before we reached the island, we anchored out and cooked
hamburgers and beans for supper and decided to anchor just inside of the
bay for the night. The wind was starting to pick up and we
tried to anchor with two anchors but one would not grab. It was digging into
some sort of clay and kept dragging. So we decided to try and go inside or the
leeward side of the dock closest to the shore. We measured the depth and found that the
Macgregor 26X was perfect for the 2-3 foot depth of water. The shore line
was maybe 15-20 feet away on the port side of the boat and the dock was on
the starboard side. The lake bottom under the Macgregor was sand.
