Grace sighting

I caught Grace hanging out in my "hood" today. Poor picture, I hope the drizzle stops and the sun comes out for you.

OK, I am ignorant so I looked it up.
When two power-driven vessels are
crossing so as to involve risk of collision,
the vessel which has the other on her
own starboard side shall keep out of
the way and shall, if the circumstances
of the case admit, avoid crossing ahead

of the other vessel.
Note the anchor chain

Out of curiosity do people leave their boats in at this area, or just haul out later?

We are about 70 miles north of Deltaville, and we keep our boats in the water year round. We do, however, winterize systems from late Dec/early Jan through early March.

Ditto for me in Solomons. I would say 30% pull their boats.

Cool pic, thanks! We are anchored waiting out the winds.

Looks like you have plenty of company along with you. AIS has several sailboats and trawler heading south near Point Lookout with you. Its always sloppy in the mouth of the Potomac with the wind like we have today. I have enjoyed your travels. I saw you leaving on the Chesapeake Biological Lab webcam this morning. I will have to find someone else to stalk now.

Yep, lots of us out here today. As feared the Potomac is not the place to be right now. I might have to break my rules and give her more than 1400rpm.

Last month I was there in 20 kt winds and 6 footers. My shallow keel 30,000 pound boat doesnt fair well in those conditions. I normally run at 1500 rpm and had to pound through at 2000 rpm. It was a long 2 hours back home. BTW that day they called for 2-3 ft seas...WRONG again.

Nice to have that horse power in reserve when you need it, huh?

Do you think this guy was anchored close enough? Keep in mind this was a huge almost empty anchorage. I do like Whalebacks and their incredible pilothouse.
