    ..which means he was stranded for no more than 48 hours but through the vicious storm on Monday night.

    Karen and I saw this guy sleeping on the shore next to his canoe on Sunday morning around 8:30 on our way to Tantalus landing. An hour later on the way back we stopped by again, he was awake and we had a chat with him. He said he wanted to spend a few days on the Sound and that he would be checking with somebody about his whereabouts. Good thing you saved him, Steve.
