I've been hopping up the coast making 9 to 10 hours a day. Anchored in Factory Creek in Beaufort SC. Wind got up and I was dragging anchor. Somehow got the anchor up with no damage and tied up at Lady's Island Marina. Next day discovered a hole in my exhaust pipe. Now I am in fix it mode again. Waiting for parts to come in the mail. Who knows how long that will take. Not a bad placevto wait though. Foid, groceries,and restaurants are all close by. The town of Beaufort is right across the bridge. A 15 min ride across the bridge.
I am a long 10 to 11 hours from Charleston. I hope to do it in one day. I did it ten years ago by hitting the tides exactly right. Hopefully can do it again as soon as I get the exhaust fixed. Probably run until I get to Wrightsville Beach and then take another break and play on the beach. Then back to Hampton. Then make some life decisions and maybe sell the boat. Anyone want a nice broken in Catalina 310?
Weather has been spectacular. Low humidity, cool at night for great sleeping,
