We’ll such is life aboard a boat, our initial “plans” included leaving the boat for a month in North Carolina, however situations dictated differently. We are currently tied up to a dock at Georgetown Yacht Basin well up the Sassafras River a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. Our port side engine has been getting progressively more difficult to get into gear and with 3000+ hours on it, it now appears we need to have the clutch replaced, which can’t be done in the water and is above my technical and tool equipped ability, Soooo, we will haul-out here tomorrow and re-launch sometime the first week of November and its quite nice here to boot! We had a good sail down the NJ coast and up the Delaware Bay, 30 hours and 202 nm from Atlantic Highlands. We also had a good trip down from Maine, visiting Portsmouth NH where we toured the submarine USS Albacore and also stopped at Newport RI and Thimble Islands CT, then up the Navasink River in NJ. Departed NJ with 28+ knots on the nose and arrived 30 hours later at the Sasssafras with 28+ knots on the nose, fortunately the 28 hours in between was mainly 10-15 with clear skies. Tomorrow we’ll shift over to “land mode” which is strange after being aboard the past year, cheers for now.
