Daddyo, we are at Fort Pierce. Skies are looking pretty bleak to the South---much lighter to the North. Where are you thinking of holding up for the night? Will you be near Peck Lake or Manatee Pocket?

Hi Don,
No real plans just going to push on till I'm tired. Got up at 4:00. Can't sleep when I'm leaving early Storms over, just a good boat bath.

Put in a solid 14hrs. Time to call it a day and use the head. Offshore tomorrow for a few days straight hopefully. Won't have connection for a bit. If I don't show up on the AIS after a few days please call the USCG.

Looks like generally 3-4 with winds picking up the further north you go.

Well it looks like offshore is delayed a day Clients have decided they have boats they want so email essential and storms crossing the area with 45knts in them added to a persistent 3-4' today. Good part is inshore is the same distance as off in this area

Daddyo, you just by blew us like we were sitting still. Oh yeah, that's right, we were sitting still. Your track shows a little jog to the East. Is that where you anchored for the night in the Indian River? Raining like crazy here too.

Yep that is an "anchorage" on activecaptain. Really just a spot with 6-7' of water and zero protection but non needed last night. I've anchored in the middle of the Chesapeake and the Gulf of Maine when there was no need to seek shelter. It's funny how we tend to needlessly go out of our way to curl up like puppies when anchoring

I'm jealous.
At 8:30 I was leaving ft. piece, by car, driving to pbi to fly back to nyc for a week.

I'll start mytrip north at the end of April.
Thought it would be kind of exciting to be cruising thru that line of TS.

Godspeed

The storms are fun, most of the time. Forgot to mention I fueled by truck in Lauderdale for $3.60 a gallon tax incl. Always fuel by truck if possible, better price and fresh fuel
