I must say that there isn't much of interest along this first leg to distract me but Im sure that will change.
We always thought the Waccamaw was one of the, if not the, most beautiful parts of the trip, especially this time of year. Usually anchored out and dawdled for a few days. Sounds to me like you will be seriously bored now through the Low Country, we felt South Carolina and Georgia were the two states worth staying inside for most of the way, exploring and gunkholing.

Anyway, glad to hear you're finally en route and things are going OK!

We ran around 20 knots day and 15 knots at night.
So about 1500 gallons of fuel?

Just a little over in total. Total from Myrtle Beach to Georgetown to Home as we ran it was 512 nm, 1550 gallons. From Georgetown home would have been about 1508 if I had to guess.

Wifey B: Yeah, the only reason we run so much is to make sure no bugs get in. That's why we ran to Miami this morning. Nothing to do with me wanting to eat lunch there or go shopping. It was bug preventive measures. Officially BPM. Make a note of that, all. Lunch is a good side benefit though.
