You know my semi-self-satisfied words about balance and fun-to-suck ratio?
I eat those words...with a big helping of crow on the side.
We had an intense 2 week haulout with a surprise rudder repair -- the two weeks were more than 50% suck. More about that later.
We're exhausted and needing to remind ourselves why we like this whole thing so we are off to spend the long weekend at anchor in the harbour we got married in (Bedwell on Pender Island) with friends who are camping nearby on land.
