Blustery and Squalls
31 May 2011
Headed for another try at our final destination. Brought along a 3rd. to help with the watches and armed with Bonine, dramine, wrist bands an whatever else I could think of to quell the unexpected reactions. Set off about 6pm on the 27th from Eureka and had good seas for the first bit. Cappy opted not to put up any sail and make it a motor journey. Seas getting rougher and felt the pangs come 3 PM. Totally useless for the rest of the trip. Raycor Filters started clogging up at about 6 AM the next morning and finally had to change 4 of them to prevent stalling. Last one gave up the ghost at about 4 PM (along with the starter) and that was it. Had to get towed into Brookings, OR ... made it by 12:30 and there she stays till we can get the fuel cleaned, removed or replaced...
