Re: Heading south

Have to stop for a bit to fill the cruising kitty first. After that .... well who knows

Re: Heading south

Small world out here today ...fog as thick as soup. May have to drive the rest of the way by instruments.

Re: Heading south

Michael, I ran into that in about the same area last spring. At least you have radar. Visibility was under 100 yards when I came through it - damned scarey.

Re: Heading south

Well we did it. Just tied up in Hilton head Island. A bit of a slow start due to about 100 yars viz this morning in thick for. But Mr. Dadar sorted that out pretty well, even though I don't like to navigate just by instruments in tight quarters. But it cleared up after a bit and we had the run of the tide pretty much all the way down the Beaufort river to close to HH. Then we anchored Tiki, I jumped ship and we tied Tessie up at the end of a T dock in Scull creek Marina. To all those that told me that is can't be done ................ To the rest of you, thanks for coming along on the ride. I'll put a bunch of pictures up, once we got ourselves sorted out here, in a day or so. For now its feet up, a cigar and a drink and some food...... maybe not in that order.

Excellent. Congratulations.

Really appreciate the play-by-play updates too.

Re: Heading south

Well here is a pic taken from shore of the last time we put the hook down for this trip and Linda picking me up from Tiki to come to shore.


And the last 3 or so feet of the trip before we tied up Tessie. Note Linda is driving Tessie and I am the sorry looking deck hand.



More to come

Re: Heading south

Just some random pics from the trip.
Linda exploring the Waccamaw swamps.


Sometimes ya wonder how they get through the turns



Sunset on the shantee





And then things got cold





The kids kep each other warm



The dolphins had it warmer in the water during those days



And after the cold snap we had some great calm days



Tiki at anchor after the trip
