Doug made it to Mexico from Alaska

I am happy to announce that my good friend Doug, and fellow TF member has made it to Mexico from his home port in Homer Alaska.

Doug made the trip, over 2800 Nautical Miles in his 30' Willard Pilothouse, all by himself.

This is a Fantastic accomplishment!

Congratulations Doug!

Great Accomplishment!

I'd really like to encourage Doug to post some details of how he did it, where he put in, fueled, engine maintenance stories, etc. This is something we can all learn from.

Is there a diary/log to read. Would really like to learn from his experience of a long voyage on a relatively small boat.

^^ What Olivia said. Though a daily reader of this site, I had no idea Doug was engaged in this kind of voyage.
