    Sailing on a painted sea. He actually ghosted along pretty nicely considering the almost total lack of wind. We saw a couple sail boats out today but we were mostly by our selves all day.

    There was one notable exception.

    The keen eyed will note the Queen Elizabeth approaching Marmion Island. Without a doubt the Queen Elizabeth produced the worst ship wake weíve ever had the pleasure of encountering, extremely steep and close together. Dropping off the back of the second wave and into the third we buried the bow completely and took water all the way back on the wheel house windows. But that was the worst of it and nothing broken, other than that we had a flawless seven hour run.

    Canít complain about that.

    Thatís not a train, just trailers from a mine somewhere, sitting at the barge landing.

    Jim, just to make you aware, there's little bit of fly poop on your windshield.

    I got your back buddy.

    I've had the pleasure of steaming past both queens in Sydney harbour, one along side and the other at anchor so no wake to deal with.

    You have the most beautiful cruising grounds I have ever seen!

    I think the worst wake I have encountered was from one of our nuke subs when traveling on the surface.

    ^ Ours can stir it up as well
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    It’s funny, we see a lot of cruise ship traffic, and some ships are definitely worse than others.

    But mostly they’re in port when we’re out.
