    I watched part 1. Very nice.

    That sailboat has no lifelines! How do you go forward in rough seas?

    I watched part 1 and part 2 - it looked like a fun trip! The island didn't look very busy - is that due to it being January? I would think it'd be a lot busier in the summer months, yes?

    PS. I didn't see any mermaids, though?!

    Nice video! I did the sail from MDR to the Island a few times on a 27' Erickson. I have several friends who regularly sail their beachcats over. I considered it when I had mine but never did get around to it.

    Be a heck of a trip on a Laser, but I'd want a chase boat to go through the shipping lanes with me!

    Hmmm..maybe I should plan an Island getaway with my wife one weekend..Catalina is fun.

    You mentioned the clear water;snorkling and diving are amazing there. BTW, if you don't pick up a mooring in Avalon, you can drop the's 90' to the bottom in the harbor and you can see all the way down!

    I initially was thinking this video was about a sailor who sailed the trip in a Sunfish..
    Still nice video, has anyone done the trip via Sunfish?
