I figure worst case scenario I can call my friend or the coast guard to come pick me up if worst goes to worst. And by the way, the engine is like from 1990's and has broken down a million times, but I have taken that thing apart so many times at sea, something would have to go drastically wrong for me to not be able to fix it.
If you are day dreaming dont waste our f en time man. You are talking to the only guy that has the balls to cross 8 foot swells in a little 12 foot dingy on one of the worst crossings in the world. Get a Honda though. Catalina is easy.

So did this ever go down. 4 hours each way is way to long.
