Another 700 mile North Atlantic voyage with pics
Well, we just completed another 700 mile trip in the rough & frigid North Atlantic ocean from Goose Bay, Labrador to Point Leamington, Newfoundland. There were 7 machines this time and everyone made it without any serious issues. 2 kawis, 3 yammis & 2 sea-doo's. Didn't get many good pictures this year but I attached a few below.

Wow Kman . . . . that's a big league ride! And all those icebergs! The water is 38 degrees? Maybe? If someone gets something stuck in their Pump who jumps in to clear it out? You guys all look prepared . . . . that's good!

You have to really be prepared for this trip as there's no support boats or anyone following and the coast of Labrador is very isolated. Just a few small communities with no roads in many areas. These places rely on ferry service. Last year one of the guys broke down and he had to wait for the ferry to come in and get the machine lifted on the ferry. Some of the items we had were: GPS's, sat phones, SPOT trackers, tools to repair machines & some spare parts, gas, tents, cooking gear, clothing, drysuits/wetsuits, straps, tow ropes, food, water, etc. etc.
We encountered fog, whales, seals, sea birds, puffins, dolphins, icebergs and more.
