Along the ICW - A Change in Plans?

We had every intention of making the 0900 Great Bridge opening, but the VHF wailed a violent weather alert for our area about 0830 and we decided to stick around till the weather passed. At first the thunder was distant and half-hearted, but the squall approached quickly and in no time, the lightning [...]

Along the ICW - Day 13

It was a boisterous, no-sleep night. The wind howled to 30+ knot winds from the southwest. The anchor alarm sounded about 12:30 am; we were dragging. We were up on deck in a flash. The anchor had evidently broken free and we were traveling at about .5 knot towards the channel. We had plenty of room and [...]

Blue View - River Rules Apply

As I write this, we have completed most of the 770+ miles of the ICW from St. Augustine, FL to Norfolk, VA. We went outside into the coastal Atlantic waters for only a short stretch between Charleston and Georgetown, SC, primarily because the tides were wrong and we would have either had to wait most [...]

STUCK IN SWANSBORO

After living on the boat, dealing with so much extra space is sometimes a bit mind-boggling. Don't get me wrong, we love having a bit more space, but we're conditioned to having every bit of space be useful. On "Cups" everything is so compact. Every space is used...under stairs in the ladder, in the bilge, under floorboards. We even have a wine cellar under our aft bunk (holds 6 cases of wine!). Having extra closet space and room to expand is clearly a luxury. There's even furniture that moves here...desks, bureaus, chairs, sofas. It's not built in place; it can be rearranged to suit your mood. It hasn't taken us any time at all to cover every flat surface with "stuff". And since the house itself doesn't move or get tossed by waves, we don't have to worry about lashing everything down and putting it away as soon as it's been used.

However, where else but on a boat can you clear the dinner table, rinse and put dishes in the sink and never get up from the settee.
