  • Maintenance Notes:  Nothing of note
  • Personal notes:
    • Chris:  there was a sense of completeness pulling into Newport Harbor, the place for me where this dream pretty much began over 20 years ago.  I was looking forward to seeing a few of the old places I used to frequent, getting to surf again, and seeing friends
    • Monica: Unfortunately there was no wind our entire trip to Newport.  However, that meant we could make it one straight shot and our arrival time would be fairly accurate for once.  The drumming of the motor and the splashing of the waves was the perfect sound track for my almost 2 hour nap. Ahhhh!  As we neared the harbor mouth and had Chris take over the helm.  After all, this is the dream of The Captain...to bring our home to Newport to be with our family and friends again.  I couldn't wait to be home!!!!!!
