The Ribbon Seal is native to the North Pacific, from northern Japan to the Aleutian Islands.

This guy showed up on the Anacortes Marine Servicecenter fuel dock. I’ve never even heard of them before.

He was kind enough to roll over so we could get a good look at his awesome seal wonderfulness.

In other strange news, we cut some holes in the floor trying to clear the bilge drain system.

We found three bays that didn’t have limber holes. One of them was full with at least eight inches of water. Now the bays have limber holes. Less water inside the boat is better.
