Surprise

I was up late last night watching TV when all of a sudden around 1am the whole cabin lit up from outside. I mean bright lights like “Close Encounters” bright.

I went outside to check it out and saw a mini-cruise ship (230ft) pulling up to the face dock right behind my boat. Yikes!
They spent the night there and left around noon. They were transiting from Baltimore to Jax.

I know they must have all kinds of fancy nav stuff, but still, driving that thing through the “Rock Pile” at 1am has got to have a high pucker factor. KJ





Never a dull moment.

. . . . . . . . but the career does. Rip the bottom out of a loaded passenger vessel? Let's ask Captain Jack.
