Quick Trip to PNW

Pulled anchor for the first leg of our voyage North. Should be pretty quick, plan on averaging around 60 knots up to Tacoma...

Aaahh. Another advantage of not having a flybridge! Similarly, it's a two/three-night cruise via ship to the PNW from the Bay Area. ... We'll be in Juneau July 3.

Did you drain any water in your exhaust SX including exhaust lift. Why? Because on some boats on a truck the water can slosh back up into exhaust valve and turbo. You don't know it happened most of the time but it can lead to damage and early demise of some engines.
