Boat trip – day 22, the final day

Filed under: boat trip — admin @ 7:27 pm

We slept in since we got in late and didn’t leave the fuel dock until 11:30. We had a strong tail wind, were cruising at 13 knots, and surprisingly only about one foot swells. Everything I had promised the boat when it made it to Puget Sound, it was a beautiful day for boating. This was the flattest water we’ve seen on this trip.

Our wives were on the dock in Port Townsend as we turned the corner at 1:50. We motored on past Indian Island and on to the last stretch to Port Ludlow. We made it to port at 3:15. We had some trouble docking because of the wind, but with some help we were secured and back on home ground. Amante Del Mar was finally home.

With that I will say – if you’re ever in the market for a “new” boat, and you come across a Jersey Dawn, pick it up. The Cat 3208s were rock solid and we beat the crap out of the boat but it handled it without issue. It was an east coast manufacturer that is no longer in business, so they may be hard to find, but worth the search in my opinion. I have much respect for this old girl.
