Anchored in a cove near Tuna Point, located about half way through Johnstone Strait, on the northern side of Sunderland channel. Captain Terry confers with the owner, about where she would like to go. She explains to him that when possible she would like to have the boat placed and connected to moorage, or securely anchored by mid after noon, when she would like to retire to her stateroom suite, for 2-3hrs.
After knowing this Captain recommends they go to Port Harvey, and anchor for the evening, a good anchorage that Captain Terry Had used over a dozen years before when he captained the 70' M/Y "Staccato" for Bill& Marylou, and look into a couple other coves that might be used for moorage or anchorage at a later time, if needed.
The Owner agrees, engine checks are made, then started, the anchor raised and "The Ringleader" is underweigh to Port Harvey to spend the night.
"Mary's Promises III" comes in and anchors a few hundred yards to the north of "The Ringleader", after she is securely hooked to the bottom of Port Harvey's anchorage.
The owner retires to her stateroom suite. Captain Terry, goes over cruising manual, operation manuals, then gets into his book given to him by a past owner employer, that owned a 75' Hatteras that was sold 2 weeks after Captain Terry was hired to captain it. The book is "Vancouver's Discovery of Puget Sound". Written by Edmond S. Meany in 1907. Meany was the 1st History Department Chairman for the University of Washington.
