Sarah Sarah Landfall


The second FPB 64, Sarah Sarah, is resting quietly in Neah Bay, Washington, having made landfall at 21:34 UTC.



Her average speed for the ten and a quarter day passage up from Hawaii was 9.93 knots, a speed length ratio of 1.25.


At the end of a well made passage like this there is always a sense of accomplishment.


And with a new boat, Sarah Sarah has just been in the water 100 days, there will be a punch list.


A touch of thruster, kick the stern over with the prop, line up with the dock,


and hand across dock lines to waiting family and friends.


Kudos to Skipper Bill Henry and his crew for a passage well made.


We will have more details shortly.

    Congratulations to crew and creator (Dashews and the other one too) for this successful passage. I tried to follow the arrival on but was unable. Interesting. I am tracking some other boating friends and it is fun to track their progress. Armchair boating is better than no boating at all especially when you can go to the marine weather sites and see the curent and forecast wind/sea state. This high tech stuff is amazing and a good learning tool.

    Thanks Steve for putting this all together for us to follow.

    Congrats to all. She looks beautiful. BTW what is the black circle at water line demarcation near the bow?

    Good Morning Scott and Alain:
    The black circles in the red bottom paint represent through hull penetrations.
