Cool....glad you got in alright....The LI sound is probably a good choice today.
Any thoughts on next port? hmm...PJ may have their mooring balls pulled too. 10 ft tidal range in there. Have a good one!

PJ is a viable choice.
Have not seen any boats around. Real quiet except we have a lot dolphins flolicking around our boat.

Awesome...Always love to see dolphins...good omens..

I've always liked PJ. You can usually spot the ferries coming and going from a distance...You'll see them long before the outer marker. if you time your entrance between their comings and goings, it makes the entrance much easier. Fuel dock probably doesn't open too early in the A.M. The next easy in and out for fuel after PJ and before East River is Manahasset ( capri marina)...no diesel on City Island and no good fuel stops in NY...

Have a great day!

Haha ....... We are struck at Clinton harbor CT. Tow boat could get us out. Have to wait for high tide. It was preventable, But captain failed to keep his boat on the portside of the green bout. I called out loud, but he did not listen. Oh well. It is his decision, I have to respect that.
All in all, it was a good day. We have full six hour current behind us. We were doing 6 to 7. At around 4 pm. The current reversed. We can only doing 3 kn with head wind. That when we headed in Clinton for the nite.
The trip is much longer than I planned.

Dawg... Don't you hate when that happens...Hope you get off ok.

Trips more often than not end up being longer than planned. How are you holding up? Norfolk is still a long way away. You are still two long days from NYC......Curious..was he trying to leave with the fleet for BVI?

Yes. He admitted he should have listened but he went with his instinct which wrong. He is the captain he entitles to make mistake. In the end there is no harm done.
At around 11 pm, we finally got unstruck with the help of the towboat.

Day 4: sunny with wind on our nose. We should have 6 hr current with us. We will head west as much as we can. I hope we can make it to ft. Washington.
Thanks for reading and comment

The captain is not aiming for BVI. His final destination is mid. Florida. Both are retired and no schedule. Unfortunate I am not.

Will monitor closely.

3:30 pm:
Engine kept shutting down. Not good.
We are just 5 nm east of Eatons Neck / Huntington. Hope we can make it to there and have a mechanic to look at it.
I suspect the solenoid kept shuutting off the fuel.
