Took the family out on the Sea Pearl for the first time yesterday. Had a blast. We sailed out of Stockton State Park Marina, out to the dam area and back. Stopping in a leeward cove to swim for a little while.

Had a bit of trouble with the tilt trailer afterwards, but it turned out to be part of the safety chain stuck between the two trailer halves and keeping the pin from locking in place. I ended up putting the boat back in the water and reloading it. Fixing the issue in the process.

The wife and kiddo both enjoyed the day. Which is awesome. Looking forward to having them out on the water with me more often. I made a small box of "pirate treasures" for Gwen to take out with us. It's filled with things like bubbles, squirt guns, a toy sailboat and a Nerf football. All stuff that floats when accidentally dropped over.
