Re: Finger Lakes,NY to Key West,Fl.

the winds are calming , thankfully. I hope the worst is behind us. We weathered well and now it's time to do a bit of provisioning ,planning a few repairs and make our way south in the next couple days.

Glad you're making out okay. Unfortunately, forecasts suggest the winds will remain in this zone through tomorrow evening.

You might be really close to the storm center now Joe. In the Hudson Valley we are getting slammed with wind.

Only halfway through Joe. Wait till you see the aches die after the open the Conowingo Dam on the Susquehanna. You will need a lookout on the NW for days.

BTW Chesapeake City not an ideal anchorage as you found. Holding is muck. Little bridge you anchored in front of has a 3 knot tidal current. The Sassarass is our choice when coming from Cape May and Reedy Island on the Delaware on our way to Cape May.
Stay safe
Dave

Re: Finger Lakes,NY to Key West,Fl.

Blowin' like stink again , From the east right now . got me pinned to the floating dock pretty good. The tide is Way high if it gets 2' more there's gonna' be an issue as it's almost as high as the roadway next to it. I checked the tide table and it says we should be going the other way soon (down) . I hope it does . there are 2 other sailboats and a trawler tied to the floating dock as well.just checked outside still up, not good

Re: Finger Lakes,NY to Key West,Fl.

Finally, it's past as most unpleasant things do. We had the good fortune to use a car w/ another couple in the anchorage to get to Wally world for groceries, all stocked up for a while. This morning washed al the leaves of the boat while I topped off the Water tanks.
Now we await the Holloween parade at 1m today in Chesapeake City. After which I think I'll go into the woods and cut some wood for the wood stove.
Tommorrow I hope to depart. The question is how far I'll get , If I wait for high tide (1pm) the it will be a short day . If I go earlier I may have to battle the current and end up the same place a the end of the day ,just burning more fuel w/ no gain. Decisions decisions.
Along those lines , Whorton creek looks favorable for an evening's anchoring, although Sassafras is a bit closer and we've been there before. Then onward.
Suggestions ? Anyone ?

Sassafras and beyond

Joe, ,

Worton Creek is on of our favorites. About 20 miles from Chesapeake City Go inside of the wind is SW or W as it will be bumpyy otherwise. Inside very protected with bald eagles and a great marina. Next stp south is Rock Hall 18 miles. Lots of marinas. Anchorage in Swan Creek depths no more than 7 ft.

On the west side is Bpdkin Creek and Rock Creek, both on the Patapsco . I am in Rock Creek

Next is on the west side of the Bay is the Magothy
Eagles cove is beautiful with horse farm, Broad Creek very protected with glass house at entrance, and other nice creeks further up

Next would be WhitehallBay with 3 nice creeks
Then the Severn with Annapolis and many nice creeks like Weems above it.

Next is South River around Thomas point with Harness Creek and Aberdeen Creek

Lastly is West/Rhode Rivers split but use same entrance. High bar on Rhodes nice, off of Hartage or Pirates nice on the West

Re: Finger Lakes,NY to Key West,Fl.

Gald to hear you & Chef2 have come thru this unscathed.

From the pictures I've seen of stuff not to far north of you guys, they got boats stacked up like cordwood.

Re: Finger Lakes,NY to Key West,Fl.

Yeah we lucked out here. East of us ( actually Cape May is due east of us) and north up the Jersey coast it looks like armagedon. Boats like in the magazoines stacked in the corner of basins. We lucked out here big time as there was little surge. W got virtually the same wind they did, more rain but no surge
