Weathering out the winds in Broad Creek

24 October 2009
We have enjoyed a lay day here in Broad Creek. As forecast, a front came through today bringing 20 knot southerly winds with 28 knot gusts. As our next step is to cross Albemarle Sound (in a southerly direction) and as that stretch of water is notorious for kicking up a bad chop in strong winds we felt no need to try it. We have been lucky in that we only had a very brief shower and otherwise enjoyed a warm, sunny day.

We did spend some time fiddling around with our depth sounder which has been giving us some erratic readings - this is very disconcerting in the skinny waters of the ICW. The control unit is very old, the transducer is only two years old, so we suspect the control unit. We even have a spare unit but when we hooked that up it was even less useful than the original one - so much for being prepared with spares!!! Tom cleaned up some connections so we are hoping that will do the trick. We really don't want to have to put in a new unit - so fingers crossed. Otherwise, everything else is working and we have had a lovely day tucked up in our little world aboard Osprey.

Another amazing sunrise today!
