Sure makes one wonder how the early explorers got around, not knowing where the rocks are and not having an auxilary engine.

I brought my dive gear along this weekend, figuring I would change the zincs and give the bottom a scrub. After anchoring at Hope Island and changing the zincs I went down to check the anchor. I found our chain was wrapped around an old crab pot. It was full of crab but it's closed season right now, so I let 'em loose and tied a line to it to recover it and then offered it to some campers on the Island. They had been going back and forth all evening checking their shrimp gear. So after dark we were sitting in the cockpit, eating popcorn and having a drink and the campers came by with a bucket of shrimp for us. Looks like fresh shrimp for dinner tomorrow when the kids come out and raft up to us. Guess that would be the silver lining. We'll limp on home on Monday. Hope the rest of you have a nice weekend.
Cheers.
