Zooming at 10 kts up the ICW

Suddenly the Mosquito is moving at 10 kts rather than 2.5 kts.  Did SB and SOS drink a Redbull at the Walgreens to paddle faster?   No, apparently they stopped from 4:00-5:00pm to reconfigure the Mosquito as a sailing vessel.  Perhaps they had had enough of paddling hard and/or the conditions changed in favor of sailing. In any case, they are zooming up the ICW at 10 kts except when delayed at a bridge.  Alrightly then!

Hope they don't get a speeding ticket.  

Update:  At 7:30pm approaching Peanut Island (at Palm Beach Inlet) at 11.9 knots.  Out inlet tomorrow?

A change of pace:  dashes instead of dots

Pausing from 4:00-5:00 to reconfigure the Mosquito for sailing
(It's a time-consuming task.)
