Seven Day Voyage to Manitoulin Island

"We sail--we surf!--smartly down the narrow channel, its small red and green buoys wildly bobbing in the path of the 12-14 foot waves rolling through us. Once inside the breakwater, we come round and, with a few hails from a handful of folks standing by to help us, head for our berth, an end slip facing dead to wind. A few seconds more and we will be on land again! "Hey", the guys yell from the dock, "you don't have any fenders out!" Fenders, hell, we can put a little scrape in the gellcoat--no one would complain about it under these circumstances. "
