Shakedown

posted in: Maintenance | 0

The forecast for today is 10 kt winds, waves 1 ft. We headed out this afternoon into Semiahmoo Bay for a shakedown cruise (aka sea trial). Conditions were good for motoring at various rpms and checking Island Song’s systems. The engine sounds good! It was great to get out on the water again. We had a mix of sun and cloud today and motored for 10 nm, keeping an eye on the engine temperature.

The Semiahmoo Bay Regatta is on today and the bay was full of sails. I’m sure they would have liked a little more wind … but that’s sailing!

Cheers!
