Stalking your ais... See your Hobucken run...

Will be a pleasant ride through protected canal. Coinjock is quite a way. Watch the occasional log through the Pungo-Alligator canal...

I need to get a t-shirt that says "Hobucken", but I think you only get that with a front tooth extraction.

Hey Daddyo -

You still shooting for Coinjock tonight? Albemarle east winds about 10 knots. Fairly calm. So far.

Looks like he is snuggled up near the eastern side of the Alligator River for the night. A good days run.

I would love to do the "Not Dismal at all" again but I just don't have the time. My marina (that I paid for a slip and then used for three weeks this whole last year) is having it's season opening party tomorrow and I would like to be there as apparently they have timed it to coincide with my return

I would expect that having left well before 6:00 this am would easily put me at Hospital Point or maybe even Hampton depending on what happens with the lock and bridges.

Hospital Point easily (well, bridges...). Nice anchorage. Get past the Gilmerton bridge and you're free. Depending on light and weather, Back River maybe.

Trip is reverse nostalgia for me since we bought our boat in Solomon's and came south.

Daddyo, from looking at your track, it looks as if they have straightened the channel some from the Alligator to the Albemarle. Did you find anything of note at that entrance?

I'm using current USCG charts and they matched up with the markers. Key in that spot is to follow the markers not the GPS and also read the Activecaptain comments. Plenty of water.

Are you using a laptop at the bridge?
