Chris and Judy James - I am staying in their slip at the Royal Victoria Yacht Club while they decide if they will purchase Ladybug.

Ladybug safe and sound at the RVYC. Jim Allen, who helped me buy Ladybug, commented that she looks like she just came back from a trip to the Gulf Islands.

Cruise ship I met about 300 miles off Cape Flattery.

Aft starboard shroud has begun to fail.

Repair to shroud that got us home (I sailed mainly on the port tack to keep pressure off the starboard shroud).

Trying to dry out the autopilot.
