Same reason as you can pee overboard, but if you pee in the head and pump it out that`s a big no-no?

Actually that becomes a very interesting question. In a no discharge zone it could be illegal to pee overboard. I could see that as a very amusing court case.

If you pumped it down to where it came from it would probably be legal.

Wifey B: Stay tuned for our next episode. When last we heard from OC he was showing us pictures of a beautiful sunrise and calm seas, but he was speaking of strong winds too. How was his day? Was it smooth sailing all the way or was it filled with challenges? That is information you will only get on the evening news in this thread.

The VHF started talking again after I dumped the water out of the speaker. Character building or something.
Sounds like an adventure (what it's called if you survive ).

Had that weather in the sounds of NC, more important there. Looks like it will be nice going forward.

Sorry to disappoint you. Long hard day that just wiped me out.

Made Brunswick (Brunswick Landing Marina ) around 5pm and stuck it to the dock, literally! Wind was gusting and it literally pinned the boat to the dock. Have fenders deployed; come in parallel 15' off; stop forward motion; lean on the bow thruster to stay parallel. Don't think I could have pushed the bow off the dock last night with the thruster.

Nice facility with cheap fuel ($1.49). Staff is professional and had me prepared for the dock sticking exercise. Foraging for food and dinner didn't go quite as well. Local market within walking distance didn't work out and wasted valuable day light. Back to the boat; wait 45 minutes for a taxi to Winn Dixie; wait again to go back to the boat. It's now 8pm and dark out. A command decision is made to avoid unfamiliar surrounding after dark. Maybe my next visit will go more smoothly.

It's dawn of a new day. The wind has fallen out and I will be in FL shortly, provided I can keep dodging this crab pot markers. Here is dawns first light from the East River and the Sidney Lanier Bridge in Brunswick GA.

Wifey B: The dawn of a new day always makes up for the previous day. So, think perhaps days a little shorter than yesterday in order? The deeper into a trip, the more long days seem to be especially tiring.

Greetings,
Mr. OC. Beautiful sunrise shots! Thanks. "What, no morbid curiosity?" None what-so-ever. I wish you fair, uneventful seas and travels. Karma doesn't need any help from me.

Just a report from NC: Any of you that have gone south HAVE DONE THE RIGHT THING. We are framing the roof on my new house and this am it was in the upper 20's with some wind. The fun factor is very low. I am learning to HATE cold. I am staying on my boat with my old cat and the heat pumps are doing ok for now. Weekend lows forecast to be 19F. This sucks. I want to go south. Ran the boat motor for a half hour last night and just layed in the bunk and listened to it purring. But the cat was not purring, freaked her out a little, but she calmed down.

Oh well, no real point to this but to gripe about cold and wind. Carry on.

Nah, 85 statute miles today, heading to one of my favorite anchorages. Short day Saturday, stopping to spend the afternoon with a buddy.

Why Mr. RT, I'm truly touched. Maybe you could send Marin a spoonful of your "Good Will Toward Man" (might take more than one ).

To warm for a bikini, think you should go without.

Weather conditions are very nice here, sunny and less than 10 knots of wind. Pretty calm at Kings Bay Naval Base. No Boomer sightings.

Wind chill 30* now. Really cold later. TG for anti-freeze! It is almost 5:00 somewhere. Need to buy milk and bread. Good news is I won't remember this in July.

No pics, didn't happen.



I think wind chill around here today is in the mid-teens, supposed to be below zero tomorrow and over the weekend.

Hmph.

Here is our garbage plan (got it from the USCG site):

Waste Management Plan for Alaskan Sea-Duction

Person in Charge: Thomas and Kay Teseniar
Solid Waste Management Procedures:

If the vessel is within 12 miles of shore or returning to shore:
All refuse materials are put in garbage bags and stored on board until they can be disposed of in dumpsters on shore.

If the vessel is outside of 12 miles from shore and not returning to shore:
All the garbage with the exception of food materials and paper is put in a garbage bag to be hauled to the dockside trash receptacle at tripís end. Food material and paper generated in the galley are collected in a bucket (or in a paper bag or cardboard box) and the bucket emptied over the side (or the food filled bag or box is thrown overboard) by a crew member.

Crew Education:
At the beginning of each season all crew members are reminded of the refuse discharge laws and shown the MARPOL V placard posted in the galley. The crew is told that it is a vessel policy to stow all garbage materials on board except for food and paper when the vessel is outside of 12 miles. The captain orients all new crew and passengers to the rules governing the vessel including refuse laws and refuse handling.

Captainís Signature:

Wifey B: Well, today wore clothes for the Butterfly Farm and shopping at Caribbean Gems and Shopper's Haven. Could listen to your suggestion and try Orient Beach tomorrow. Just can't walk past Pedro's as the gendarmes occasionally cite and detain according to the club, so a bit of a gamble. As a result the nude beach covers a smaller area than it once did.

I like nudity at the right times and places. Living in South Florida you get use to very little clothing. Topless at South Beach. Nude at Haulover if you want. Topless or nude at home. So the fact there's a nude beach here just really isn't a big thing. It's just like any other beach other than bikini off.
