Third Day – Motor to Half Moon Bay

We leave for the 60 miles trip to Half Moon Bay. The ocean was not as angry. Although the swells were still significant, the ocean was not near as rough. We did not get seasick. I had taken out the auto-pilot when I refurbished my boat. I had no plans to make long trips. Now, I was stuck with 100% concentration on the helm. The waves would toss the boat 90 degrees off course with a single crash. I had to never let go on the helm. It was exhausting. My mother was not capable and I feared for her safety. She stayed below. Even when I stopped the boat to pee, we were flung around…

Upon my approach to Half Moon Bay, I notice sticking out of the ocean a small rock right at the entrance. I did not see a note on my GPS. After getting inside the Marina and getting to the gas dock just 5 minutes before they closed at 5 pm, I called the Harbor Master for an assignment for overnight berthing.

After I tied up the “Glenda Fae,” I went to the Harbor Master’s office. I mentioned to him about seeing rocks sticking out in the middle of the harbor and noting that my GPS simply drew a straight line right over the rocks... He became excited and said, “You guys get killed all of the time. You are not setting you GPS correctly.” I acknowledged perhaps he was right and I would double check my GPS settings.

      Nell Rose,

      The "danger" was my ignorance! A little knowledge is dangerous. I have "as little knowledge" as anyone else. I had purchase a super-duper GPS with added details about the area I was motoring to... The key was to program the GPS to go around dangerous stuff...
