Big Fish and Acts of Courage

Rick and Beck were no-particular-schedule people this spring so they joined us for a transit from Port McNeill to Shearwater enduring Cape Caution and another challenge that remained  not photographed but will long be remembered by those aboard.  As we rounded Welch Rock into open ocean we broke a towing cleat and set the fishing boat adrift.  Everyone donned life jackets.  Jan took the helm and with Doug's guidance slipped the SeaDrifter down the back side of a wave.  Doug hooked the fishing boat with a hook.  He and Rick manhandled the small boat along the swim step.  Doug held it fast and Rick climbed aboard firing the 140 hp and falling into line behind the SeaDrifter.  There were extra rations of rum for all that evening.

Nice Fish, Rick

Can you find the monster in the background?
