Our Last Bagel in Baltimore
I felt like my throat was on fire and part of my head was missing.
We now intend to leave the dock tomorrow morning, October 5.
Last Minute Adjustments
|We purchased and installed a SnapIt single drink holder on the |
steering pedestal to use as a mount for our signal horn.
The rainstorm that lasted several days during the weekend just prior to our departure convinced us that it was a good idea to bring our cockpit enclosure along for the trip. Several days of continuous rain during this time of the year is not uncommon and it would be nice to be able to keep our cockpit dry and warm. We intend to use the enclosure only when it's necessary to keep dry and warm--hopefully, not for the entire trip down the ICW. The down side of bringing it along is storing it in our quarter berth when not being used.
Another SeaFrost ice cube tray failed (our fifth failure with a year)--so I removed all the rubber and adhesive from around the outside and had the two halves welded together. We'll see how long this fix lasts.
Hurricane Matthew can still mess with our plans sailing south but it won't be in our sailing area until late on the weekend. Not to sound nonchalant about it but we will deal with it appropriately when the danger becomes more defined.
|From the projected path of Hurricane Matthew, our paths will intersect |
near Norfolk, Virginia on early Sunday morning, October 9.
We are headed to Onancock, Virginia via Galesville and the Solomons and will be publishing our next blogpost sometime over the weekend.
