I took the boat out yesterday...
...because I watched the news yesterday morning and they told me it would be great! They said, the waves on the bay were only 2-3 feet and the waves on the ocean were only 2-4 feet. Sounds pretty nice for a 21' boat doesn't it?
I launched the boat at a spot that puts me straight out into the ocean. I had a plan. There's a light tower about 10 miles off the coast that's supposed to have some good fishing.
We headed out and about an hour later, when I was only about halfway there, I turned around. I have a SeaTow contract, but I'm not sure how they'd tow my boat if the keel was facing up instead of down! The boat does pretty well in nasty seas like that, but it's definately not a cruise liner!
So, I pulled the boat out of the water and drove over to the bay. I get to the launch on the navy base and the girl behind the counter says, "You do know there's a small boat advisory in effect don't you?" "Oh yeah, I know all about it", I tell her..."I've already been out in it!"
Luckily the temperature was so nice that all that water that was spraying all over the boat actually felt really nice. But I feel a little beat up today...
You know, I burned more gas in my truck while pulling my boat around than I did with my boat! My truck does fine pulling my boat...it just drinks heavily while it does it!
...I think I need a break from my breaks sometimes!
