Went for a two hour morning sail on the Olaf with the captain/owner of the boat. Very comfortable boat and he made the trip enjoyable with his stories if the area and local fishing tales. Worth the time and money

We had over 40 aboard the Olad for a wedding party, plenty of room especially if you are family.
