Dirty bottom

26 July 2016 | Deltaville, VA
We're hauling out for bottom paint while it's too hot to actually go sailing. Luckily there were no surprises when Skydusky was lifted out of the water. Sure would be nice if maintenance wasn't a part of owning a boat.

Skydusky is home again

03 June 2016 | Lancaster, VA
With a couple of long outside runs and a visit to the Outer Banks we managed to stay one step ahead of tropical storm Bonnie and avoided some parts of the ICW that we don't like to do (SC's high current anchorages, NC's restricted bridges, Myrtle Beach's rockpile, and the 21-mile long Alligator-Pungo canal). All in all an easy trip back up the coast!

Portsmouth free dock

Milepost 1
Portsmouth has a couple of basins along the Elizabeth River with free dock space. We chose the north basin this time because we need to do a pumpout in the morning but it isn't as nice or protected from wakes as the south basin. However, we don't want to complain about free!

Tugs, the good and the bad

02 June 2016 | Albemarle Chesapeake Canal, VA
Milepost 14
The good: Captain of Tug Paradise Creek told us to follow him and we would get through all of the bridges.

The bad: His prop wash boiled up a log that we hit hard.
