    A 32 or 35 beauty outside MDR on 4-23-2005 ?

    White caps start at around 13-15kts. I don't see any in the picture so I wouldn't say it was blowing anything over that at the time that the pic was taken.

    Geoff, If you make it up to Santa Cruz, There is good hiking from Pelicans to Prisoners ( about 2mi). And also from Prisoners to Smugglers and Scorpion coves (14.5mi).

    Gathering of the So. Cal. Vikings at Two Harbors (Isthmus) on Catalina Island.

    Jeff The trip sounds good. The only problem on my end is that I'm just now putting my engine back in. And I'm also getting new canvas and sails. The other problem is that my weekend is Monday and Tuesday. I also won't know when my vacation is for another couple of weeks. If I don't make it...

    Fuel filters - before or after

    The problem with putting the pump before the filter is that the pump will get all of the junk that comes out of the tank, And you risk damaging the pump. Davis E-29 #226 Holy Guacamole :egrin:
