The white bow wake being pushed up. Usually you see it on tugs running "hooked up".
On the Rachel J she looks like she means "BIDNESS".

Rachel J showing in Oriental on Sunday night. She must be a fast-mover.

KJ, that one is reminiscent of the old Chesapeake Bay buy boats.

Pining for more boat pics but your well has run dry here. So I looked on the Oriental town dock webcam and saw that Rachel J pulled out this morning.

2 more days until we splash and head to Oriental ourselves. Hoping no issues with engine start after being on the hard for 5 months.

Phil-a "Bone in her Teeth" means she is gong fast enough to push white water at the bow. Hence the "Bone"

Saw these critters on the Waterway today. I've been told it's unusual to see them this far down from the inlet. KJ
