Today is the day! We made it through the lengthy closing process and I (Ben) am picking up S/V Shadow. Our new [to us] 1987 Catalina 36!

It has been a couple years since we had a boat and Alix and I are beyond excited to get back out on the water and go cruising again.

Onboard was: Harold, William, Aaron, Ben.

We picked Shadow up from her old berth in the Tacoma Yacht Club. A very protected slip, but not much room in the fairway to back her out. No mistakes allowed!

Then we sailed over to Tides Tavern in Gig Harbor for some lunch, before heading to Shadow’s new home in Foss Harbor, slip I-1A.

We had some hail, some rain, and some sun. Good wind and drifters. Overall great day to be on a sailboat.
