Heading south

We got out of Baltimore 3 days ago in the early morning hours went around 30 miles and stopped for the night. A couple of nights ago we anchored behind james Island and woke up yesterday to fog with visibility of under a quarter mile. So at 9 we upped anchor and made it into Solomons yesterday in a " fly by instruments " kind of way. Just using Plottter, depth sounder and radar to get here. We will be waiting here till the weather clears up a bit and it is a bit roughout there for the house boat with he blunt bow compared to the sail boat, she pounds a lot more in the chop.
I'll update on the next stop, hopefully from the potomac river.

Re: Heading south

If you stay there today here's a local attraction, the marine museum:
Visiting The Calvert Marine Museum

Sailing "Horizons," a Hunter 31, from the Middle Chesapeake around Solomons Island.
I can keep a secret, it's the people I tell who can't.

Re: Heading south

We did a down wind run today. Me with just the jib and Tessie using her bulk and one engine. Ended up in corn field creek, just at the tip of the northern entry to the Potomac River. Nothing here other then a police rhib in its slip and a bunch of geese, just the way we like it. Going to wait for better weather here till we go on and that may take a day or three.

Shoot. I really wanted pics of your sailboat towing the houseboat. Ah well. Safety first.

Re: Heading south

Ice rain, sleet, thunder storms. We had the lot today with wind speeds of up to 30 knots. Good job we have good holding ground and a good anchor on the end of that chain.
There may be a little window in the weather tomorrow for a run across the Potomac river entry to get a bit closer to the end of that bay, but it is does not work out, we are busy with Christmas decorations, may just have to get the machete out and dink over to shore to get a tree for the back deck

Re: Heading south

Yeah Ferret, you've been here long enough to know the rules here, if there aren't any pictures, it didn't happen.

Re: Heading south

Michael, you must be out of your mind. I thought I told you to get your ass out of here by the end of October. The bay and the ICW can really be nasty this time of year. If you want to spend the winter where you're at, let me know and I'll hook you up with a friend of mine down at Smith Creek, which is just six miles upriver from Cornfield Creek. He has a good dock, electricity, real nice people and I'm sure they wouldn't charge you very much to spend the winter there.

Let me know,

Gary
