Wrightsville bch is my stomping grounds!! My dock is about 2mi n of the wb drawbridge.

I run at night lots on the icw, and come up on these tows fairly often. They like to leave the searchlight on, no doubt. Coming up on them, I give a quick blink on of my searchlight, and 90% of them will then keep their light off me. If not, time to get on the radio!!

Sometimes just best to duck out of the icw into some other channel and let them pass, but gots to be careful of their surge, especially at low tide!!
