Mark, hope you are safely snuggled down at anchor. You were fortunate indeed. That shoal has caught many boats. Some have been lost because it was too rough to tow off the shoal. Even in the ICW you have to go out near the shoal and cut back.

Sneads Ferry, NC is a great place for fueling, but there again I would not attempt New River Inlet without local knowledge.

Bless those in Boston. Glad your family was unharmed.

Couldn't get it to open. The spot I bumped was two miles out slightly toward the south side of the "channel"

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

Welcome to the forum!!
That has got to be the coolest first post ever! I would assume the dip on the graph is when signal was lost. The pulsation would show the pounding into waves I think. The map view is a very neat tool indeed. Good to have a techy aboard!

Well, if you happen to be in NC at the coast or Neuse River area on a weekend let us know! I'm sure you'll pass by during the work week and we'll miss you, but just incase!

Hi Mark -
What is the App that lets you TRANSMIT your AIS? I looked for it but I did not see where the Marine Traffic app provides that, did I miss something?

Cheers

The second app is called mAIS. It is not really AIS, other vessels with real AIS transmitters WILL NOT see you, but it is very cool and allows you to be seen on the MarineTraffic site/app....and it's free:-) There are some good FAQs on both Apps that explain additional details.

Headed to Ocean Petroleum in Brunswick. Thanks for the tip. Hopefully this will fix my slight smoke issue.

By no means, headed north. The very cool Brunswick bridge.

Never been up there by water only via car a few weeks ago looking at a 3888 Bayliner. Beautiful country.

Have a great day.

The Georgia marshes are the incubators of much of the fish and shellfish on the East coast.

DonnyP and Daddyo

Thank you very much. I thought a while ago about the transmitter unit but other priorities on my list. This makes it easy. If you should activate it on land, you show up as a land yacht, I suspect?
