WanderingStar Pretty much. There were two we rejected. One due to strong current and potential commercial traffic, the other because it appeared to be too close to the channel.

Any special advise on picking the side streams? Or as long as the depth as ok and it was getting dark and you weren't in the main channel you figured you were OK?

I concure. I'd much rather be doing this in the warm with out restrictions, however, it is what it is. This will not be a pleasure cruise but we will find our joy in being on our new boat and learning a bit more about her.

I am so worried about that happening to us. We are time limited on the run so I want to make as much progress each day as possible, however cutting the sunshine short without a satisfactory place to anchor is keeping me up at night.
