Yup, DFs are dry. But, after 4 hours of going head on into 25 knots from the NW and 6 foot short amplitude seas our vessel looked like a salt block on a voyage on the north end of Georgia Strait.

Can't do anything about the salt. On the other hand that's a typical walk in the park for the mighty, bigger then life, legendary DF48!!!:-)
