Re: Heading south

The ice fell off the rigging last night so we are good to go.

Re: Heading south

We were faster then we thought through Charleston harbor and the bridges. But I could not get through Elliot cut at 7.5 knots, as we were a couple of hours early. So now waiting for the tide to change.

Re: Heading south

We got to within 6 miles of the cut to the Beaufort river today. The weather was wet but not to cold so we pressed on as we had the run of the tides most of the time. Now, 34 miles from Hilton head and the end of the trip we are not sure if to split those last miles into two days as neither of us wants it to end, but we also want to get there. I will make the final call tomorrow when under way depending on the weather and the way we feel about it. Once there, I'll be able to get a decent interweb connection and will post some more pictures of the trip. Yesterday I looked behind me to see how Linda was doing crossing Charleston Harbor and she had 3 extra crew on board. Yup 3 Pelicans sitting on the railing and the AC unit on the top deck hitching a ride.

More tomorrow.

Re: Heading south

There will be other trips in the future and probably some different adventures involving our boats as thats what we live on.
