Julie, I have no doubt that he did indeed!

firstCandC: It was ~8.5 hrs dock to dock. I'm am actually in Whortonsville ~2.5 hrs beyond Oriental.

We stayed at the town dock in New Bern and had fun exploring the town. The highlight of our stay was the New Bern Ghost Tour. BTW forecast for that day was 70% chance of rain! But to their credit, NOAA got the wind strength and direction spot on.
