Yikes !!
 
Sitting at anchor while Noel ambles by is definitely not my idea of fun. Even this far away (300nm) it's nasty. Drug across the river last night, so I moved to a more (very slightly) protected spot further in. Took 4 tries to get a good 2 anchor set, but it seems to be holding. I get the feeling I won't get much sleep tonight, as it suppose to only get worse. Buckle up you folks on the Cheesie, you're next.

John-

What ground tackle do you have aboard Aria??

ReverendMike 11-02-2007 12:44 PM

Good luck John!

John,
You used to give your Lot/Lon so we knew where you were.
I admit I have not been keeping track of you, so where are you, NC?

Stay safe Beez...just heard a call from a 38 foot sailboat looking for a slip here! Unbelievable to be out in these conditions!!

Now I'm glad mine is on the hard.

Looks pretty bad. Stay safe everyone in the involved areas.

I'm back in the South River near Oriental. I'm hanging on a 35 lb CQR with 30' chain and 250' rode and a 22 lb Fortress with 10' chain and 100' rode. So far, about 4:1 scope seems to be working the best. Tried more, but I couldn't stay put on it. Too nasty to use the dinghy to set the 2nd anchor, so I don't have as good an angle between the two as I'd like. And just to make it real fun, it's suppose to get down in the 30's. Oh joy !

PB,
If you get to Oriental and are bored, let me know. There are a couple of boats I'd like an opinion on!

Sounds like a pretty good setup for a boat your size. I guess you'll be breaking out the polarfleece today. :D
