Gale Warning

13 November 2010 | Atlantic City, NJ

We are still here waiting for our weather window, it will be tomorrow. Started the engine and ran it for an hour. We hauled the dinghy and stowed it on the bow. We are ready to go. It has been an interesting stay here. Our second night here a captain knocked on our haul. He "lost" his boat in the dark and he was in an inflatable kayak. Therefore, Greg towed him to his vessel. He never did put an anchor light on. Our anchor held great with 120 ft of chain out during the 50 mph gusts of wind during the gale. Used the generator a lot and made a few runs for gas for the generator and gave Newt some romp time. We talked to other vessels anchored here on the radio. (Sophie, New Horizon, Last Navigator, Freedom Quest and Quinntessa) Thursday night about 3 AM Greg was awakened by the radio. Our neighbor was talking to the USCG and needed transportation to shore for a medical emergency. The CG did not understand he was the patient, the vessel was at anchor and he did not have strength to weigh anchor nor a dinghy to get ashore. Greg got on the radio and offered him a ride to shore where the ambulance met them. All ended well and when they returned Greg gave them a ride back to their boat the next evening.
