RE: Perfect anchorages on the East Coast.

Thanks, as to the Defever I was just down there Tuesday to get my head around the scope of the project. Lot's of nice little surprises the more I looked around.

Right you are, Charlie.* It is a great anchorage.* There are so many good anchorages on the Chesapeake Bay that there should probably be a whole thread on those.

Here is one that is not an east coast anchorage in the strictest sense.* However it is not on the west coast of the US.* It is where we were anchored the last four nights.* The south end of the Boca Grand Canal.

John, didn't see who was on the Fleming, so couldn't rule out Marin.* There was another docked around the corner at Boca Grande Marina.* Could it be that Flemings are a dime a dozen in South Florida?

However, it is good to be South this time of year.* There are good times to boat most everywhere.* We plan to move Moonstruck north to the chesapeake Bay in the spring.* Fall on the Chesapeake is a magical time.

Some nice pics here guys, having not had the opportunity to cruise or even visit the east coast, I'm enjoying seeing it through your eyes/lenses. Keep the pics coming.

John, there is nothing like being anchored on the Chesapeake in October under a full moon seeing and hearing a flight of geese fly over.* It is just good for the soul.

Right On,** The only thing that makes it nicer is if November takes you further South.
