JUST LEFT BEAUFORT
05 November 2016
After a day and a half enjoying a great Town, Beaufort N.C., Comocean and crew pulled out of the docks at 4:30 for the GulfStream crossing and Bahamas. The Gale force winds passed. The Gulf Stream will still be a challenge with a north wind against north current but still very doable. Then a nearly due south run to Marsh Harbor Abacos. Dinners in town were great. Flounder, Crab Cakes, Crab dip...oh yea, and someone ordered Buffalo chicken legs. Great museum. However the important news is that the windlass, which pulls up the Anchor, has been dismantled. And, the wind instrument is now working. We put on quite a show at the docks for the tourists. Tom and Bill are holding the new wind instrument. It just needs to get 59 feet up the mast. Photo
About four more days with much better winds ahead of us.
