Quite the Blowhard

Worked radio crew for haul out this past weekend. Winds gusting to 90 kmh. Made for some very tense moments when the large power and sailboats were in the air. My main concern was making sure everyone on the crew was safe. Very easy to crush a fellow sailors arm under a pad when the winds are blowing that hard. It was very difficult to keep the boats steady while in the air.

All worked out well in the end. No injuries and made it on time. All the boats were out by late afternoon on Sunday.

I have OD duty this weekend so I will probably tidy Gray Jay a little while I am down there. It is always so strange to see all those boats up on cradles in the yard over winter. Just does not seem right.
