Full Moon on the Sassafras

Hi all -
Just brought a boat and spent 10 days bringing her down from New Bedford, MA to Rock Hall, MD. On the last night, I anchored in the Sassafras River- being late I had help from the full moon!

Beautiful shot of a beautiful place... Did you come down outside or through the Sound and outside to Cape May? How did it go?

I know it well, we kept our boat in the Sassafras when we where moving it from Milford, CT to NC. It spent a summer in the Sassafras as we were still in NJ at the time and wanted to be near enough to use the boat for the summer. It was great there except for the spiders, small spiders everywhere!

Great picture

As some of you know, we were planning to anchor near there a few weeks back, but Irene washed away our plans. Maybe next year!

Nice shot, good luck with the new boat...

Your windlass looks like a Lofrans Kobra, I think you'll be happy with it, I love mine...

Thanks all. Yes it's a Lofrans Kobra, she's good also had one on my last boat. Came down the sound, right after Irene- East River motored down the coast of NJ, up the Delaware and then down the bay. Had 0 wind for 5 days.. hope we have some wind this fall. Yes it was shot just past Betterton .
