At last the photos of French Pass:
Grace and Sarah - looking back from the lookout. The passage through is between the beacon and the land next to where they are sitting. The white water on the other side is reef...
The village of French Pass - Wayne's "Anna" is in the foreground, "Equinox" is next to the wharf.
"Anna" passing through the narrows. At this stage the current is flowing at 5 knots and he is doing about 7 at full roar on his engine...
Sarah - "WOW, this is cool...."
You can see the current on the beacon. This was gradually built up by pouring concrete into a steel ring 4cm at a time between tides over a month.
