Of course now that we're underway I discover the port start 4D is shot. Hopefully I will make Boothbay early enough to lug one of those several hundred yards to the boat! Just picked up a submerged lobster line as well. Anyone want to come and dive in this 55 degree water?

New battery installed. Now we're looking at 3-5" of ice and snow tomorrow with gusts to 35! I guess we stayed a bit too long

Hope you are tied up tight for the blow headed your way. It's sustained 25 here and heading to sustained 40 tomorrow. Just noticed you already have 35.

We made a run this morning across the lower Chesapeake from Cape Charles to Hampton so we could beat a 1600 Gale warning. Its the first 5-6' stuff we have been in. It was also the first time we experienced a longer wave period of about 8 sec. Normally the Chesapeake chop we run in has a 3 sec period. It wasn't fun but it was a lot better that the 3 sec stuff.
Daddyo, it looks like you may be stuck for a while. The same system we have here is impacting your area. Passageweather.com looks bad up your way for the next 5 days.

We're in a great spot for the blow but I really hope to be offshore to Boston on Monday night. We'll see.

Now sitting in Oriental NC for our 3rd day. It was 42 degrees this morning and the wind is still gusting over 30. We were lucky enough to snag one of the free town docks. Monday looks like a go.

Don't fool with the Atlantic Ocean, wait out the weather system.

Travel safe. Howard

Genny did an admirable job. Power came back after six hours or so. No genny and we would have been in trouble! Crazy weather for Nov 2nd.
