Re: Wake up! you in the boat,wake up!!!

A fairy tale begins with;
"once upon a time.."

A sea story begins;
"No sh!t ! There was this time in port'o'call....."

The juxtaposition of the two?? I dunno. Keep trying, Belize...you'll get there. Flesh it out some. Write it so's I'll feel the mist and taste the salt air.

Pirates and channels and barges, Oh my! I luv me a good yarn. I find suspension of disbelief to be refreshing.... refreshing, indeed.

"the leeward edge of the channel" means nothing.

Either you were IN the channel or OUT of the channel. If you anchored IN the channel, that's illegal in any mapped and charted channel. If you were OUT of the channel but so close to it that you could expect shipping to run right past you, that's plain suicidal but not illegal.

Sounds like if all you lost was an anchor, you were lucky.

I agree. It makes it more effort than it is worth.

While I'm sure this is a compelling story I have to ask you to please use some punctuation so we can actually follow it. Text phone style writing just doesn't cut it for me.

Re: Wake up! you in the boat,wake up!!!

I'm not clear on all your details but tugs routinely run their barges into the leeward side of the channel when wanting to stop. The wind helps them to get back into the channel when they are ready to move on.
