That's how big they are on NOAA's website. Is there a way to mark them up with bbcode to render smaller?

Sorry about the sizes - that's what NOAA distributes. Good stuff, what?

I'll deal with weather when I'm out, but I won't stick my nose into 35-40 kts forecast.

We were using the table place-mate chart from the Red Neck watering hole. It has all hand written local knowledge there.

Some more notes form my iPhone log:

Monday, April 7:
Everyone woke late this morning about 9 am. Anchorage was great even we have not much protection in Southport

Had a western omelette with shrimp and coffee. Everyone had a look of the weather and we are going toddy.

Left anchorage at 12 noon motor sailed south to clear the shoals until we turned left. Wind from 210 blowing 13 to 18 kn, sea is relatively calm. 2 to 4 ft waves. Cloudy.

At 5:34 pm cloudy sky SOG 8.1 kn boat speed 7.3 kn. under full main and head sail. True wind 187 degree heading 66 degree. We were south east of southport 23 nm. We are heading to Hatteras 85 nm from us.

At 6:30 pm:
Extra hungry today, we had chicken wings with fermented oyster sauce, old ginger root and scallion over rice. I vaporized the food. LOL.

Hot tea on my hands, sitting in the cockpit, listening sat radio, life is good.

Boat speed 8.5 with another knot from current pushing us towards Hatteras.

Lightning at the distant sky. Captain B laid out his approach to the storm, so everyone knows what to do in a systemic manner. All understood.

At 11:40 pm
Perfect sailing wind from SW at 20 kn. one reef and jib. Going thru a squall with purring rain. Sea state not bad at all, comfy ride.

Tuesday, April 8,
At 1:07, we passed point lookout. Could not find 14 red buoy fl r 4s and A buoy either

Wind increased to above 25 kn from SW, boat speed over 9 kn and SOG above 10 kn. heading to Hatteras at 63 degree.

1:40 pm:
Whoa what a night or early morning. At 3:30 am during of switching watch, wind pike up to 30 to 40 kn with wind swing all over. With this wind and pitch dark even a simple task become 10x more difficult. We got the main reef again. Taking in the jib, for a second the boat was so imbalance. The autopilot quit. We took out the staysail and the boat is back in a control manner. Wind is still blowing hard. The boat speed was 12 knots. Not sure what was our SOG. I was freaking cold and all wet too lazy to move my ass to the helm.

I went down below when captain came up at 5 am it was apparent after the noise and screaming, we woke him up.

I woke up at noon. Wind about 20 kn from south. Just 69 nm from the entrance of Chesapeake bay. Heavy fog is here with visibility 1 to 2 nm. We turned on our fog horn and keep our eyes on the radar

As now we will not stopping by Norfolk but toward Annapolis.

At 5:02, we continue to motor sail. Boring .
It looks like a squall is coming our way from west. Massive radar image on our screen. I rolled up the jib, and button down stuff. Wind clocking from south to west occasional to the north. Massive black cloud growing bigger. Time to get my foul weather gear. LOL.

Oh did my mentioned they had a knock down this morning at around 6am. Lucky bastards. Damn, I was sleeping soundly.

Sailing up the bay is tough, very light wind on our nose. We motored all the way. We arrived at Back Creek, Annapolis at 3:15 pm on April 9, Wednesday.

A total of 5 days. If we don't count the anchorage in Southport, NC. The trip took 4.5 days.

The boat needs some TLC for next few months to get her ready again. I will have the boat while Captain B is away.

Re: What would you do you are off Hatteras ?

Haha.... We all are all alive and well. No fishes were harm during our voyage. Last night or this morning was most exciting. 30 to 39 knot doing 13 kn. While I got off my watch they had 48 kn wind. she leaned 45 degrees for a brief period

We are about 40 nm from Chesapeake bay. It is likely we will head to Annapolis without stopping Norfolk.
