Today started at 0600 (6:00am) for both of us. I had a restless night last night and was up for hours so this was not easy.


We got FatDash ready, engine started, anchor up and we are on the way.


Soon after we left we ran across a big ship. I go down to look at the AIS and find out what it is and where it is going. The ship doesn’t exist on the AIS. It’s military. Are we suppose to be here?


There are vertical takeoff airplanes and hovercraft.


The aircraft are launching.


All this and still no warning for us. We are transmitting our AIS with position and moat name so they must know we are there. It was our own personal military show.

After the show was over, actually we never deviated off course and we left the show behind, it was a normal transit. We arrived at Mission Bay guest anchorage about 1630 (4:30pm) and got settled in.


It is a bit noisy but we will only be here for 1 or 2 days.
