Jo Bailey (1928-2017) Gunkholing In The San Juans – Pt Leader and others

From Mike Sato’s Blog, The Salish Sea News.

Sailor and author Jo Bailey passed away in October (see obit She coauthored several “gunkholing” guides to South Sound, the San Juans and British Columbia’s Desolation Sound. For landlubbers who’ve never gone “gunkholing,” the term describes cruising in shallow waters, roaming around, and overnighting in sheltered coves. Mud, or gunk, is what’s found in “gunkholes” like coves, marshes and sloughs. Thanks, Jo, now we know.
