Dauntless at 13 knots?
According to Marine Traffic website, Dauntless is crossing the Columbia River Bar right now and making 13 knots! Pretty fast for her I'd think.

Safe journey Richard.

Must be an ebb, surprising.

Just noticed that too. Seas are calm enough I guess that even at the bottom end of an ebb itís OK.

Go fast Richard ............

We went 11 knots going through Dodd Narrows.

I bet Rich has his hands full at the moment.

Saw another sailboat, Zia, cross in the ebb this morning too. Surprising, because I had spoken with them earlier and they were experienced and careful, and in a sturdy yet modest boat.

Trying to learn from the example of others, but these donít quite fit the conventional wisdom. All I can guess is thereís a desire to be somewhere before nightfall and the seas are currently very calm.

If I could pick a common asset about FD Krogens, it would be their handling with a following sea. They seem to lift and surf instead of broaching. Rich has plenty of experience with that.

If he is docked in Astoria for a few days we might just meet up. We leave Portland tomorrow.
