Very true. Few will slow down for a pass, and it makes it difficult for a power boat to give them a good pass. When you see the deep sag in the water line you know that he is making near hull speed. A long sailboat can make 7 or 8 knots at hull speed.

How far are you going to get today, Mark? You need to make hay while the sun shines because there is a POWERFUL front on the way. Get to the Oriental Harbor Marina or at least the Morehead City Yacht Basin. I wouldn't want to be at Dudley's or Wrightsville Beach when it comes thru. Southport might be ok too. Of course, you stayed out in a near hurricane, but you are alone now, so be careful, please.

You must be more patient then you realize since your watching :-) or is it like a car wreck and you just can't help but look :-).

I'm like the Larry Bird of boaters, I'm going to out work you (14 hour days), cut the corners off to out smart you and pass you at the fuel docks. I'm that guy you keep passing everyday asking yourself how the hell did he get in front of me again?

Case in point they are all following the marked channel regardless of their draft. I don't, I go the shortest distance where there is enough water. It's not a road out here, that's much of the joy of the freedom.

The few times I've ever passed anyone I have had no problems with them slowing/cooperating. They are our brothers, we need to show that we're kindred spirits and not to be lumped in with the jewelry wearing go-fasts :-)

Sorry if that came across as preachy, but I think I'm preaching to the choir here with most everyone.

Can you elaborate on this? Not sure I understand it totally. Like where are you talking about?

I was not aware that the Hinkley Picnic Boat is a Tad Roberts design.

If you look at my track right now you will see me running rhumb lines instead of the channell.

I'll take a shot at this...

Instead of normally running point to point, cut the corners off where there's enough water saving on distance traveled.

Am I correct?

Be careful when you get here! AICW North of Ben Sawyer Bridge to Isle of Palms Bridge (Statute Mile 460, South Carolina ICW)

A buddy of mine went through a couple of weeks ago and there were three or four boats grounded. They are seeing 2' depths in there @ MLW.

What a labyrinth of turns and corners and switchbacks, no wonder you want to go offshore (if your in a hurry).

I don't know why, but the AIS info does not show on my laptop. I have not been able to follow you at all... ever.
