After last week's devastating tsunami caused damage to several of our planned stops going northbound, we took a long, hard look at the trip north and decided to pursue putting Warm Rain on a truck to get her back to Washington. We were lucky enough to get several recommendations for the same shipping company - Dudley Transport - and contacted them. They were thrilled to hear from us as they had a delivery to make in San Diego at the end of this week and didn't have a load going northbound and they made us a screaming deal. On Tuesday we went into a local boatyard and have been working like demons for the past 3 days prepping the boat. Warm Rain goes onto the truck tomorrow (Fri.) morning and will be delivered to Bellingham on Monday - woohoo!
We're thrilled about not having to bash north in the boat and don't mind one bit being called wimps.
