    Well, at full load and that speed at the beginning of our trip, could've done it, but both electronics worked great (mostly, had a hic-up with the Garmin Radar) the entire trip. Between Friday harbor and Anacortes, we definitely hit something, never seen it and when I stopped, never seen it surface either. Felt like we hit and slid to the side, very odd. Was at the very end of the trip. I'm just guessing, if we had aluminum propellers, may have bent one, but not the stainless...

            Crikey! That prop really took a hit! Spendy props too. I’d love to get stainless for the Cardinal’s duo-props, but that’s like a grand. Got other priorities to work through first.

              Wow. Surprised an impact like that didn't do damage to the leg, or maybe it did??

                leg was fine, it was my fault not getting into neutral when i felt the first bump. well over a thousand dollars for those props. bent them both. plus there is a brand new set on the boat as spares

                  Decided to deal on a more permanent basis with my water tank leak issue. Almost certain the leak was coming from the welds where I had the tank extended. The old tank was wedged in so tight had to use the big hammer to bash it out. So, in the process of having a new tank fabricated, added a water gauge (KUS) but somehow the water gauge is reading backwards. Full tank, gauge reads empty, empty, gauge reads full. Reversed wires, same reading. So, for the time being, living with it...

                      Oops, forgot to add that in. Would have to re-due the volume calculations, but if I recall it is 77-80 gallons. Added an RV filter contraption that attaches to the end of the hose we use to fill it. So, for the time being, we have clean potable water right out of the tank.
