Turnbull Islands

Not much of a distance to travel today, just 20 nautical miles, but there was no wind so I had to motor all the way. I met up with my friends Dan and Francine who I had met in Cuba and who own a beautiful Catalina 34.
But the big news today is that I ran aground quite hard on to some granite. The rocks were on my charts, it's just that I didn't see them. My friend Dan swam under the boat and took a photo of the damage.
Not too good but I didn't have any leaks fortunately. I did have a stick of underwater epoxy that Dan plastered over the damaged area and when I pull the boat out of the water I will make sure it drains before I do a repair.
