Re: Heading south

Chill out Gary, I am used to Navigating skinny waters from back home in the southern north sea. I even managed to sneak into the bay between the sticky out fish traps today, using not much more then radar, depth finder and the seat of my pants as the chart was not all that accurate for that area.
Well we made it across the Potomac river entry and are anchored in a place called cockle creek near( Reedville ). Winds started of at 8 knots when we left our anchorage and then picked up to around 15 straight on the nose with rain and sleet showers for a bit of entertainment. At one point the deck got a bit slippery and I could not see much with the sleet getting into my eyes whenever I looked over the cabin top, so back to fly by instruments it was for a while. Just behind where we are anchored now, some folks are unloading their catch of oysters, shoveling them with a conveyor into a semi truck. Worst thing is that we are out of rum and I will have to dink over into the village if there is one to get some. Cant drive a boat in this weather without the odd sip of rum ya know.
