146 -  Breezy early and slowly dropped as first tropical cold front ALICE hit about noon with rain.  Slow but steady planing straight out to the Mudflats and back.  The IWC orientation was unusual with the westerly wind direction, Worked up wind but never made it to SI#1, hit a weedberg otherwise just cruising and generally enough power at the ends.  Left as ALICE slammed with NW/N wind at 30-40 mph.
