Re: Heading south

Hey Michael,

Nice pics. Hope you guys are far enough south that you are missing the worst of the cold. Supposed to be a high of 15 degrees in Baltimore on Tuesday. Looks like you are making good progress. Heck, at the rate you are going you might already be in Hilton Head.

Re: Heading south

Michael,

Loving your posts and the great pictures!

(We made the trip to the Keys and back by car. 23 hours to get back to NY in one shot.)

Regards,
Brad

Re: Heading south

Well we made it to just north of the black mud canal and dropped the hook for the day as the weather was just not playing ball. Windspeeds of around 30 knots and gusts in the mid fifties with rain that decided to fall in a horizontal manner made finding the markers a bit difficult. So we decided to call it a day at 14.00 and wait till the morning to carry on. Saw some dolphins in the ditch today but even the pelicans looked more droopy then on most days with this weather. Depending on the times we get to the next two bridges, we way stop in wrightsville or go on a bit further then that.

Re: Heading south

It is supposed to be just a brutally cold (teens) and windy night on NC coast. I hope you guys are ready for it.
And thanks for the updates. Great stuff!

Re: Heading south

Got a heater on both boats so should be ok. That is if the ICW don't freeze over

Re: Heading south

I have been thinking a lot about you. I hope all is well. Almost for sure you have conditions different then the ones we have here, on our shore, where what you are doing would be pretty much impossible. All the coast is today on red alert and the weather service talks about the possibility of waves over 50ft, quite a record even for us. Here in winter it is not unusual to have waves over 30ft.

Be careful and stay well my friend,

Regards

Paulo

Re: Heading south

Michael, the forecast is for -2 f here tonight. Damned I hate winter in this part of the world. I need palm trees, nekid ladies, coconuts, banana trees, sugar white sand and turquoise water - OH YEAH!.

Keep in touch,

Gary

ICW will not freeze over but you might have some ice on deck. It is the combination of cold and strong wind that will make it really rough. I'm 3 hours west of you and it is just insanely cold and windy already - and it is all coming your way.

Re: Heading south

So we have come from this ( just before Christmas )


Sunny and warm, having a BBQ in the evening in the north of north Carolina. To this, close to the border of South Carolina.



Ass biting cold with ice on the deck and lines that have to be beaten into submission with a stick to get them off the cleats.

Are we really heading south ??????

Hang in there Michael, it's supposed to warm up by the weekend. Might hit 55 down there.
