Initiation

04 April 2012 | North Palm Beach Fl.
Sherry, Sunny, & Hot 92f

We spent the last two days anchored in a bay at north Palm Beach Fl. Along with 25-30 other boats, both sail and power. We went to west marine and picked up a new throttle cable to replace the one that broke twice in different places. It's now fixed and Todd said it is better then ever. We then provisioned and had dinner at Duffy's bar and grill. We pulled anchor today to head to Peak lake at Hobe Sound a small anchorage that we love to stop at. Upon arriving we noticed that the anchorage was full and there was a sailboat that had sunk and all's you could see is the side and the stanchions out of the water at this point the captain decides it's time to leave and go elsewhere but where? Looking at our charts we decide we will head closer to our final destination and through the St. Lucie entrance the current is so strong and with the shoaling we ran aground hard (ouch) once off then we had to drop anchor in the middle of the channel and shut the engine off as our sea strainer was plugged and motor was going to over heat. Once fixed and on our way now I'm frazzled there is no mooring balls left and not really any place to anchor so we have to take a slip at a marina, Loggerhead Yacht Club & Marina must be good they named it after beer. So we take a slip have power, water, Internet, Cable TV. Life is good.
