Gunkholing

OK, you’ll have to look up the technical description, but it’s what we’re doing right now.

We’re holed up in a tiny unnamed cove on the west side of Gilford Island, just south of Health Cove. It’s so small only one boat can fit in here. That’s OK because there’s no one else around!

We’re just sitting in the cockpit watching the fog roll in over Bonwick Island to the west of us, from Queen Charlotte Straight. It’s sooo quiet.

Tomorrow we head to Echo Bay.

  1. OK, I did.
    “Gunkholing is a boating term referring to a type of cruising in shallow or shoal water, meandering from place to place, spending the nights in coves. The term refers to the gunk, or mud, typical of the creeks, coves, marshes, sloughs, and rivers that are referred to as gunkholes.”

    We are heading into 4 spare-the-air days of 90+ degrees. Big fire south of Carmel. Haze and smoke already today. Please send some fog. I could really use some.

    Captain Bob, can’t remember if I mentioned this book to you – Dead Wake; about the sinking of the Lusitania in 1915. I’m part way through it now and it is superb. I highly commend it to your attention.
