Boating in the Carquinez Strait

Last Sunday we took the Whaler out on a test run after all the maintenance it had recently undergone in preparation of its voyage through the Great Slave Lake in the Northwest Territories. It ran perfectly and was happy to be out on the water again, as were we. We didn't go far...just along the Carquinez Straits. We put her in at the Martinez Marina where the water was calm and the temps warm. Come along for a quick ride...

In need of a few repairs...

Abandoned buildings...

There's always one of these no matter where you go boating!

Bon Voyage Whaler!
