This is the anchorage off of West Ship Island the first week in November, taken from my little 9-foot sit-on-top kayak after I spend a half hour of so diving under the bottom to clean the hull and prop.
That trip was Michelle's first time aboard the boat. We had great weather, and the anchorage to ourselves.
Sunrise over West Ship Island.
These last two were taken by my brother, Jeff from his fishing boat, as I was sailing back to Biloxi from a solo trip to East and West Ship Islands. They were taken with an iPhone, so not the best quality, but the only shots I have of the boat under sail. I still had a reef in the main coming in, as it had been blowing a steady 20-25 knots a couple hours earlier. This boat is really easy to singlehand, a very important criteria I had when I was looking for my next boat. At this time I have two tiller pilots on board, but will eventually fit a self-steering windvane as well.
