Any Pirate trouble? It's getting dodgy crossing the Bay of Carlyon. It always pays to stay way offshore. Most of the Pirates in that region, have knackered old V4 2strokes that give up more than 2 miles off.

We were told that if we saw someone in trouble we should be careful. apparantly they put on some sort of distress and when you come to help is when you get it.

Yeah, then when the poor soul is out there bobbin' about, they flash up those V4's which then shrouds most of mid Cornwall in smoke, then those Carlyon Pirate Swingers are out like a shot 'avin there way with us innocent sea goin' folk.

eksrae,

How did you rest during the long trip? I see you have a stand/lean bolster.

Congrads on your trip. I'd like to go San Diego to Cabo to Mazatlan Mexico. Just need to buy the rib

we did not really rest. we took turns driving but never stopped. there is only a leaning bolster. a little seat slides out and you can take a little weight off.
legs were a little tired the next day.
