S/V Hello World's Travel Log

laura bay

We reluctantly left Kwatsi Bay in pouring rain and sinking clouds. We pulled out into Tribune Channel and ran smack into 15 to 20 knots of wind smack on the nose. It was yet another day of motoring. We headed for Laura Bay passing 400 foot high granite cliffs on the way named Deep Sea Bluffs by Capt. Vancouver in the year 17[something or other]. Once again, we stern tied in a great little cove surrounded by islands on three sides. We're starting to get used to being 20 feet away from shore. It seems everywhere up here, the shoreline rises straight up from the seabed.

We went down below after getting stern tied and discovered water underneath the port side settee. A lot of water. Awesome. We finally tracked it down to a leaky shower hose in the forward shower. So now we're showerless until we can replace the shower hose. Actually, that's not entirely true. We have a solar shower that we will up and leave on the foredeck. Then we run the hose down through the hatch in the forward head and we can still shower in our shower. We just can't use the shower head.
