Haulout DAY -- NOT ! - North River anchorage

27 November 2018 | North River - in front of the St Marys Boat Services YARD
Dean SUNNY and very WINDY
Tuesday - 27 NOV 2018 -- St mary's GA -NORTH RIVER
WELL....................Things didn't work out quite like planned.... At Sunrise this morning, the rain had gone, and the sun came up bright... BUT the wind was howling, and the temperature was in the LOW 40's...
BRRRR --- The dinghy was still full of water (9 inches deep) from Monday's storms.... Man, did I hate to get in there and bail that out this AM.... But I did most of it while NOT stepping in the cold water.
Then Susan came OUT, and we pulled the outboard motor off.... And then we hoisted the dinghy onto the foredeck.... WIND STILL howling....
The Plan was that we should "show UP" at Rocky's dock (St. Marys boat services) at 1100 hours.. (1 hour before HIGH tide, to give us the maximum amount of time to play with the rigging, in case we had to drop the forestay... to get AB into the travel lift)....
WE came around the last turn at 1105 hours... and called Rocky...
Rocky said that his "workers didn't show up for work this morning", and asked "can we do this tomorrow? " To lift in this wind with no help, might be a 'circus'... SURE...we said... we don't need any fiascos during the HaulOUT.
So.............we're now anchored in the NORTH River.... With the wind still HOWLING.... And , of course, doing the "North River DANCE".... With the tides and wind (against).
We noticed, when we pulled up here... that every one of the anchored boats here, was sitting in front of their respective anchors.... So we positioned our "drop" accordingly.... LOOKS GOOD... PULLED right IN tight... with WIND and TIDE pushing boat around.
The fun never stops..... every day is an adventure...
BUT................... I was ready for this morning to END, anyway................. we'd been working at getting over here since sunrise.
Wow... Wind is moving stuff around on deck..... Gotta go check things out....
Heard from Tom and Marylou...they're over at Cumberland Island anchorage.... Dinghy UP, and sitting tight.
Bill and Laura, are on a mooring ball at St. Augustine.... Along with Sequel (on the Southside). SO....... The band has broken up.... 
Earl and Kathy are HERE at Rocky's boat yard.... Getting SEEKER ready for travel... and Launch...
I'm ready for a nap..... Susan is watching TV ( ION.... Criminal Minds... I think).... More LATER.
