San Simeon Cruise Snafoo

Well, we left the dock in primo shape this morning.  The bay was calm.  Galley stocked with everything for a BBQ overnighter . . . Captain and First Mate hyped with Birthday energy.  The Captain is 38 years old today!  Nothing better than a weekend overnighter!  Cell phones stowed.  Pager and laptop left at home.


We got to the harbor mouth and saw some chop, but kept going.  After about an hour slogging it out, I looked over to the quiet Captain and found him pale and turning green.  I had popped a Dramamine about 20 minutes earlier and I offered one to the Captain.  He took it reluctantly.

Later, I said, "Is this the way you want to spend your birthday?"  He thought for a couple minutes and said, "I don't think so.  We're going back." 

All and all, we were out 3 hours.  We stretched our comfort zones.  We broke in the new boom.  We slept off the Dramamine in the bay.  The rest of the Birth Day is going much better.  Even without seeing San Simeon.

  1. The function that the boat is going to utilized for is the primary deciding factor for the added equipment and accessories that you will need.
