So is this a recipe, or just a "damn this whiskey sucks, I think I'll boil these ribs in it instead".

😂

You got that right ... but it turned out amazing, best ribs we've ever had along with potatoes and leeks steamed in the broth from the boiled ribs and a large glass of Proseco with the most beautiful woman on the planet.

It's a hard life

We'll be anchoring as far south of the CG station as we can get unless you have a better suggestion. We had our honeymoon at the Blue Rose Inn and want to go back for dinner. We'd love to meet you Sneeld. We are superb cooks and have the best coffee you have ever tasted ....c'mon over when you see us.

We are about 13 miles north, when in town and there long enough, give me a call or post...will pm you my cel.

Sunset lake about 2 nm up the ICW is a bit more relaxing, but not dingy convenient to Cape May..

Excellent job chef! I will have to try that-- I have gotten into brining meat before I BBQ it, but now I know I can boil it in whiskey also.

Yall are having so much fun. I'm jealous.

Up at the crack of dawn and just got back from a day at Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. The Liberty Museum is a once in a lifetime treat and exceptionally well done, we enjoyed it immensely.

Ellis Island is another matter altogether, not just an exhibit of the early 1900's influx but a well presented exhibition of the populating of the entire country from the beginning. Every American should visit this place at least once. It is thought provoking, depressing, disturbing, sobering, hopeful, uplifting and we will be discussing this for a long time. I won't go into details because I could not do it justice but we came away with an appreciation for what immigrants endured to create this troubled but wonderful country. We came away with a renewed appreciation for how fortunate we are and a realization that millions of people on this planet are still struggling just to survive. I implore all of you to see Ellis Island once in your lifetime.

Thank you, Wallace - very well put!
Good advice for all of us to be aware of our origins and history, and to be aware of the millions of people less fortunate than we are.

Anchopred in the little bay across from Atlantic City. Sharon had a go at making naan bread and it made for terrific chicken/vidalia sandwiches. We sat on the bottom again at low tide. Tomorrow we'll do the boardwalk and get some of that amazing cheesecake at Caesars Palace. Then we'll head down towards Cape May. Will probaly make it a very short day and anchor just inside at Ocean City then decide whether to go inside or outside to Cap May.

A couple of video shorts on our facebook page.

Pretty snotty here in Atlantic City, looks like we'll stay here another night. There was a time when going out in this stuff wouldn't have bothered me but I've grown out of that

I've heard the skuttlebutt on how shallow the Jersey ICW has gotten, including from PSneeld, but I think he's just trying to keep us trawler trash out of his territory. It would be good to hear it first hand. Remind me....what kind of draft do you have on Dirt Free?

We draw only 3' and have not seen less than 6' even at low tide. I don't mind sitting in a foot or two of sand or mud at anchor in a low tide and that has happened a couple of times (planned) just because I want to anchor well out (further than most) of the fairway.... seen too many idiots in my day.

Plan on being anchored in Rainbow Channel at Ocean City this afternoon. Give us a toot if anyone is passing.

Anchored in Cape May in 2' of water at low tide (We draw 3' ) absolutely no rocking, well south of the USCG station and a little south of the Corinthian Yacht Club. I kind of like anchoring this way when the bottom is soft enough.

Going to a marina tonight as we are getting a little dressed up to have dinner at the Blue Rose Inn (where we honeymooned). Don't want to show up there with muddy, wet feet from dragging a dinghy up on shore.

Thanks Scott. We'll be leaving here Friday morning to head up the Delaware. Stop by if you're in town before then. We've moved from the anchorage into the Cape May Paddle Club (K-5) for the next two nights. Real hot showers without banging elbows and a hot tub

Looks like we're stuck til' Saturday, maybe Sunday weather here is ...... unpleasant

If we get a break we may head back to the anchorage. If this gets worse I think I'd feel a little safer on the hook. Plus this marina thing was a special treat. extended marina stays are not really in the budget
