Bridges turn out to be the great equalizer.
No matter how fast your boat goes, no matter how many boats pass you, or you pass.... you all end up waiting for the bridge to open. So all the boats that you passed or all the boats that have pass you.... all end up bunched together, waiting for the bridge in the same spot.
Might as well take your time. I put the engine in neutral and drifted for 50 minutes with the current at 1.8 knots and was right there when the bridge opened and waved at all the skippers that past me.
Like they say, if you don't have the time, you shouldn't be here.

Sounds like Socialist cruising ;o) Fair winds and deep water for your outside passage - try not to find any shallow spots.

If you do go bump, please mark the spot. Got a feeling I'll be following your tracks real soon. You think Don would be too annoying to take along? :)

Except for his dietary habits..... Don is one of the finest crew members I had aboard UNABATED. I'd have him back in a heartbeat.
But.... he brings his own food, so not all bad.

Just kidding Don. You know you're the best sail tweaker around.

Mile Hammock Bay MM 245
11/07/2011, Camp Lejuene NC

Long day today, trying to keep it in the middle. I think I have found every low, shallow hump along the way. I either need to pay more attention or find a deeper boat to get in front of me. I am anchored tonight in Mile Hammock Bay which is in the middle of Camp Lejuene. Signs posting live fire area- turn to 530 am for more info. Burned out tanks along the shore. Helicopters buzzing overhead. I think I will try harder to keep it in the middle, else becoming a target. Today is the first time since Hampton Va. that I have been able to take off my 2 fleece sweaters and my smart wool socks. The sun feels good after so many days of sucky weather. Tomorrow, Carolina Beach to set us up for Wednesdays planned outside passage to Charleston.
