Broken In

Took the new vessel on Staurday on my home waters of the Hudson to break her in and she performed like a dream. Very Very dry! What a relief. She has a little hull slap and pounds just a little but all in all it was a great day cruising her up the river. Monday morning however was not so nice. We went out of Norwalk to try for some bluefish but after 3-5 footers in the harbor and when we finaly made it out into the sound we were greeted by 4-6 footers and the occasional larger rollers, we decided that we should turn around and head back before we got ourselves into a predicament. Despite the crap weather the boat handled the weather fine. I found that the boat was more comfortable in the slop than I was ( a good thing I guess ). No need to ruin a holliday weekend with an injury or a damaged boat. I will be back to fight another day when the weather and tides are in my favor.
