I consider it our first attempt. Several of our fellow DeFever owners will be coming by soon.

Hope to get better at it.

Well I think it's awesome, thanks!!

I have been using the mobile app to post pics recently and I realize now that it is rubbish As you can see from these the only way to go is the long way of camera to computer, etc. Sorry for the other poor quality stuff.

The images look fine on my droid

Did you moor just north of the bridge?

Looks like 2-4, showers and 10-15 knot winds from the southwest today. Too bad you can't throw up a mainsail on that puppy...

You are too modest.

It's been a blast to see all the pics underway. I was 30 miles out of Raleigh when I realized I left the Canon at home this past weekend in Oriental. Just had to make due with the iPhone. But wished I had the Canon and my assortment of lenses.

Keep snapping. Pics much appreciated.

Yep, just beside the bridge. Going out at Jacksonville. The next big project is exactly that. I'm going to put a mast on where there was one originally albeit smaller and install a rather large furling genoa. The mast will include a crows nest, etc. It's a win/win on so many levels. 2-3knts boat speed, roll resistance, high mounted antenna, look out, and just really cool!

That may be a first. A sail boat fishing with outriggers deployed. Never saw that one before.

Hopefully you'll catch the St John's river on an outgoing tide.

The mast idea sounds great. I'm sure everyone wants pics of it when completed.

Enjoy your day.

. A rhumb line to Beaufort from Jacksonville puts me too far out as my liferaft hasn't been certified since 1993 :-)

Mark,

Hopefully I'll have a contract on one of my houses by the time you get settled in up north and then we can go boat shopping! Good luck and be safe, we'll be watching.
