Morning from Atlantic City - home of buzzing jet-skis and loud (but good) music from ashore. I had to vacuum the legions of dead flies this morning. All the hatches were open and no fly-screen in place because I thought I'd give any permethrin survivors a chance at escape. I didn't think it would work this well. I had a bottle of Lifesystems EX4 antimosquito clothing treatment aboard without a sprayer so I put it into a 500ml sprayer bottle and diluted it to fill the bottle. Then I went and gave all of the cushions in the boat a light misting, my bed and bedsheets, and then all of the cockpit cushions. I had about 100ml left so I did another light round of the cushions and sprayed the teak cockpit deck with the remaining solution.

An hour later the flies started dropping like... flies

I am going to get some more of this stuff for next season, it works like a charm and Permethrin is preferable to DEET.

Anyway, I'm taking the advice given and motoring down to Lewes today. I have a half-tank of diesel left so I don't really need to fill up but if I wait here a bit longer for the tide to rise I might make it to the Atlantic City fuel dock and can fuel here; there's no reason not to fill up when I can.

p.s. I am assuming that there are no suitable anchorages up the Delaware river - I have extra time today and it would shorten tomorrow's trip.
p.p.s. I will be here for another hour or so to let the tide rise. Until then, I'm visible at the Golden Nugget Webcam named „Golden Nugget Casino view of Brigantine Cove”. Only boat there and only sailboat without a mast
So you have a new moniker
“Lord of the Flies”😄😄😄😄

There is no stop over on the Delaware except Reedy Island up by the Canal
