Headed south Ties. Nov 11. Got past Great Bridge Lock. Stayed at free dock. Left Wed. To Coinjock marina but hit a log. Limped back to Atlantic Yacht Basin Boat Yard with bent shaft. Two weeks and thousands of dollars later I was back on the ICW with a new stainless steel shaft and tuned up propeller. Now in Morehead City sitting in a bar eating shrimp and drinking a beer. Woke up last night to things falling off the table. Winds gusted to 45 knots. Glade I was tied to a dock. Heading to Mile Hammock at the Marine base to anchor tomorrow night. Then Wrightsville Beach. Except for being a little cold and a bent shaft, it has been very pleasant and making good time.
