Rudy and I have been planning to cross the channel from San Pedro to Catalina Island for a year now. So we bought 2 AIs early this year. To make this 23-mile-one straight, in reality we need about 30 miles to cross. We know we need to stack some miles under our belt. So we trolled hard on every occasions for salmon as a result we caught some fresh wild king salmons.  :smt007
With that being said we are going to do it.

We are leaving tonight.
Leave San Pedro Oct 5, return Oct 8.

Will give live report if there is phone connection. If you don't see any update, it means we are busy catching lobsters and shooting Yellowtails.  :kick

Exciting trip!
I've seen some youtube videos of AI's sailing to Catalina and it looked soooo much fun.
Probably about 6 hours of sailing time that you'll enjoy very much.
You guys have fun and I do look forward to your live report. Or I can settle with some video captions of the trip once you're back.
Enjoy guys.

By the way, be sure to carry a spare Rudder Pin. You just don't know when that pin could break. It happened to me at Dux last year and Gabekap helped me replaced it. Good thing I had a spare which reminds me I should get me another one.
Just heads up.
