Well this sucks! Looks like I'm inside again. The weather Gods or at least the #&$!@&# forecasters are laughing at me. No sooner do I get well offshore beating into head seas and headwind do they admit this is the new forecast for a few days. Seems a high pressure has settled in north of the area which will funnel NE wind and waves into my face. I'm making less the 6 knts in this which takes away most of the advantage to being out here. Back to the ICW highway.

That sucks. I just looked and now it says 10-15 northeast winds & 3-5' seas through Georgia.

Sorry to hear that. I saw your progress line on marine traffic and was curious about the speed. Be careful out there and good luck,

Can't upload images at this point, but a more interesting view of it all is at

Station statistics for 913030566

The graph view shows the lost speed today Station statistics for 913030566

and I think their map views better and with more options.

I'm in the same spot as you, this particular spring/summer here in Texas is the time to sell. Good luck with yours.

You came in via St. Andrews Sound? You are a brave and talented guy.

Brunswick is a great place to buy fuel.
