Re: I'm still alive...

About 30 miles to South Carolina, which I hope the weather allows me to make tomorrow. Tied up at the Dockside Marina and Restaurant south of Wilmington, NC for the night, met some really nice folks that I hope to follow south in the morning.

Most of the time is spent motoring, or motor/sailing on the jib when there has been wind and a straight channel that's more than 100 feet wide - which is rare down here. Gets pretty hairy when a 65-foot motor-yacht suddenly appears on your stern and there's barely enough room for two boats to safely pass. I'm still making about 45 miles a day, but not every day because of bridge schedules.

Oh well, at least it's a bit warmer,
