Saw that. Not very complete, but certainly promising.

I hope to meet you along the way for a nice long, wet handshake

I verified that Southport Marina is still accepting transients, and I also spoke with the waterways dude at USCG Sector NC. He said there are no restrictions in place for marinas taking transients at this point. They are cautioning that any vessels arriving from foreign ports should be quarantined for 14 days, but that doesn't apply to vessels travelling domestically. He said he doesn't anticipate that will change.

We just learned the Little River Bridge did in fact begin opening, sometime late afternoon yesterday but before their rush-hour-traffic closure. Drat!

Although our trip yesterday put us a day forward in our plan.

Which we are trying to accelerate a bit. After we put the boat back together, slosh off all the salt, etc.

We we're going to have some elective electrical surgery tomorrow (by Zimmermans) to see about the GFCI thing, but... in the meantime, we'd rather be home (near Annapolis) for any self-induced isolation rather than on the boat with limited resupply available, so...

We leave tomorrow at oh-dark-thirty, bypassing our normal stop in Wrightsville Beach and instead moving on toward Swansboro.

That may mean some temporary hold-ups at Camp Lejeune. Talked to range control, they're starting a large week-long exercise tomorrow... but will temporarily halt firing on either the even or odd hour (dunno which, yet) for ICW traffic.

We'll probably stay out ahead of you on this trip, but I bet we'll eventually be able to do that beverage/shake paws thing sometime or other...

Stay safe, enjoy!

-Chris

But that reminds me... since you'll be passing us to slightly further ahead to Southport Marina... wave as you go by! Can't miss us, at South Harbour Village.

If I see you coming, I might remember to turn a radio on... usually 78A works well for us...

Dave: Things can change fast. If you find a place you like you may want to hang there. New Smyrna Beach City Marina closed to transients as of today. Ortega Landing Marina in JAX posted this: Marina is open. We are accepting all long term guests with daily arrivals. We are delaying short term transients until April 30th as a precaution. Office is closed to the public and staff are rotating office time to manage check-ins and facility. Pump out services are operable. Pool, spa, restrooms and showers and laundry are open. Local grocery, West Marine, and shops are open. Clubhouse is closed temporarily for social activity and being used as a mail room for deliveries.

I'm going to try to get moving by 0800 tomorrow, and ride the flood tide up past Carolina Beach. I'm skipping Wrightsville this time, and am aiming for a night at anchor at Mile Hammock Bay.

I saw a really handsome looking vessel called Ranger tied up at South Harbor this afternoon. I slowed down for a low flyover, but t'wern't nobody home. I guess you'll just have to wave at me tomorrow when it's your turn to leapfrog. Tag, you're it!

What silly and weird world we're in these days. Worst case scenario, I've got fuel and water, and enough cans of soup to get me clear on up to mile zero. TP is okay too, but I've taken to Tarzanning from a halyard, ass first into the water. It's very refreshing, and it helps to make people want to stay away from me.

Nonono. Illegal. Toe or elbow bumps instead. Except our PM now wants us separated by 2M. 2 people out for dinner are going to need table for 6. (Hint: he doesn`t want us going to restaurants, there might well be room). A drink in a pub? Mmm no.
I just ordered some wine online. Delivered, no signature required. Order 1 case, get one free. And from Treasury Wine, whose brands include Penfolds Grange,but I`m not expecting a free 6 bottle $4800 case of Grange.

Too bad we missed you; guess that was when we were doing chores down below. Like putting everything inside the boat back in its rightful place, after our oh, so fun ocean run from Georgetown. Even shook the mesh speaker covers out of their fittings... Geez!

The perfect opportunity to disinfect behind the speaker covers! lol

When I were a lad, I used to carry around a brochure for the Nordhavn 46. I would stare at that brochure whenever I had an empty moment. I would dream about owning one, what I would call her, what color and layout I’d pick, and all of the places we would go. I wanted one like normal kids wanted Lamborghinis or girlfriends. That’s just the kind of nerd I was/am.

Up to that point, I’d never been aboard one, and had only ever seen one in person, but it was on blocks on the hill. So when I pulled into Charleston Harbor, I immediately picked out the N46 that was moored down the dock from me. I decided that I would introduce myself and be friends with whoever I found, even if they were jerks.

Her skipper beat me to the punch, and was on my dock inviting me to happy hour before I knew it. I’m happy to report that not only are they not jerks, they’re thoroughly lovely people who also happen to be newly converted full time liveaboard cruisers. We had several pleasant encounters throughout our stay, and eventually discovered that we were both planning on leaving town on the same day, and in the same direction. So the convoy of two was formed.

We timed our departure for slack water, which was shortly after sunrise. There was some patchy morning fog around, but it soon burned off and gave way to a beautiful sunny day. We caught more fair currents than not, and we made good progress. They were making a fraction of a knot more than I was, and ever so slowly pulled ahead throughout the day. By the time we reached Georgetown, they were about twenty minutes ahead of me, which gave them time to get secured before I rolled in.

The wind had been picking up later in the day, and was blowing off the dock when I arrived. I made a bit of a horse’s ass of the tie up. There wasn't a lot of wind, but it was going in a very unhelpful direction. It took several attempts from several directions, and in the end I was only able to get alongside because a schadenfraudience had formed to watch me screw up, and they kindly offered to catch me. This allowed me to use the ‘pointy end first, ram it in hard and fast’ method. The result was only some minor injuries, and my insurance will cover most of the damage. We should all be back on the water just in time for the 2023 season. This marks the end of the blog until then.

Just kidding, it went fine. I was greeted at the check in desk by Milo, the ferocious dogbeast of Georgetown.

There was a restaurant in town that I’d wanted to try last time I was there, but never managed to get around to it. I succeeded this time, but with whispers of something called the Corona Virus starting to waft around, I felt a bit weird about being there. I was happy to be leaving money in town, but wasn’t sure if it was okay to be out. There were lots of other patrons, which was both comforting and disconcerting. Anyway the food was good, and I haven’t died yet, which is nice.

I ducked out of Georgetown the next morning, and laid in a course for to North Myrtle Beach. The Nordhavn gang would be sticking around in Georgetown for a couple of days, so I was a parade of one again. There was a bit of morning fog, but otherwise the weather was lovely. The cruise was pleasant and uneventful, with a few exceptions. The Socastee bridge was out of service when I arrived, and I had to tread water for about an hour while they made some repairs. That gave me enough time for a conference call with some work colleagues regarding the impending Covid crisis. Things certainly seemed to be escalating quickly in that department.

After the bridge, I found myself playing tag with a couple of crew boats that were skulling up the river. They were going three wide with their coach boat, and taking up the lion’s share of the channel. Since I’m so slow, and they’re apparently pretty fast, they were mostly staying out in front of me. They’d occasionally slow down, I’d catch up, and then they’d take off again. It was like chasing a bird down the sidewalk. They see you, get spooked and fly off in the same direction you’re going, only to be just as surprised and alarmed when you turn up again forty five seconds later.

After a few awkward encounters like that, it looked like they were moving over to let me pass, so I started working my way over to one side of the channel. That’s when I hit what I assume it was a fallen tree across the river. I never saw what it was, but it sure felt and sounded solid, and it bumped along the keel far more times than I’d have cared for. It was the most alarming series of bumps I’ve felt yet, and I could actually feel the boat riding up over it, which was a deeply unpleasant sensation. I was never more glad to have a deep, sturdy keel, and protected running gear. From what I can tell, no damage was done, except to my underpants.

A short time later, I found myself back at Barefoot Landing. I’d planned to stay just for one night, just like the last time I was there. I ended up staying for three nights, just like the last time I was there. This time it was due to the Little River swing bridge being broken down. There were several other boats there waiting for the bridge, and over the course of my stay, the latest rumors of it’s next opening were always hot dockside gossip.

I laid low for most of those three days. The virus situation was really blowing up by then, and It was becoming clear that it was important to stay home whenever possible, so I did. I played video games, called some friends, and gave the boat a scrub.

I did meet one new friend though. A friendly local and fellow TF member by the name of Cliff Meima came down to visit. We had a nice chat from a safe distance, and I was glad of the company.

That night, to continue the theme of staying inside playing video games and being antisocial, I decided to order a pizza. I’d been told that the marina restaurant had decent pizza, but I’d already eaten there several times, and didn’t feel like going back that night. I ordered Domino’s for a delivery, and left instructions for the driver to drop the pie at the marina BEHIND the restaurant, and not to go TO the restaurant. Well, as I was standing by the road waiting, I heard the owner of the restaurant asking people if they’d ordered a pizza. What I should have done at this point was ignore him and quietly walk back to the boat empty handed. What I did do was say ‘Oh… that’s me.’

What happened next, was that I was escorted by the owner, who was most likely worried about the future of his business in these uncertain times, across the patio of his restaurant, which was open, full of patrons, and actively serving pizza of it's own, to where the nitwit delivery driver was standing with my pizza. Several liquored up members of the crowd then proceeded to heckle me for ordering Domino's to a restaurant that serves pizza, which is what I was specifically trying not to do.

The manager Hag shouted across the space, loudly enough for everyone to hear, with venom in her voice: ‘Y’KNOW! WE SERVE PIZZA HERE!’

‘YEP, I KNOW.’ I shouted back

‘WELL APPARENTLY YOU DON’T! she spat back.

I decided that the odds of my being able to explain why I wasn’t an ******* to this particular group of ******** were small, so I took my shame pizza and left. I will never return to that restaurant. I hope that’s what they were trying to accomplish.

On the plus side, now feeling that other people were seriously overrated, it got a little easier to quarantine myself.

Man, I like that N46. There's one for sale in Florida, I think, on Yachtworld. Your boat is metal, though, isn't it? That would be my preference.

You, sir, have good taste in boats!

I sure do! lol. Sylphide is aluminum, and with the number of things I've run over climbing all the time, I'm grateful for it.

Hey Dave:


I had the same happen on the Tombigbee last October, somewhere near Columbus, Mississippi, but not severe enough to raise up the boat like what happened to you. It was loud! Fortunately I was only moving 7 mph at the time, and at the first bump I started raising my outboards and threw 'er in neutral.


I was steering from the lower helm at the time because it was a cold and rainy day. If I'd been up top I would have seen it and been able to avoid it.


I was really wishing we had a keel as the bumping traveled from bow to stern. The outboards got very loud as they were momentarily deprived of their water intake. It's funny how the mind races, picturing all kinds of damage, while at the same time instantly lowering the outboards in the microsecond the log is astern.

There was a tow coming at us, and that split-second decision to leave the outboards running while tilting them up is one I'd make again.

I was ready to dive on the boat when we got to the marina in Columbus, but they put us in a 3-ft deep slip! (picture below) Having only a 2-ft draft proved to be very useful, as it was their last covered slip and we stayed there for 3 days waiting out a late-season tropical storm.

We ended up waiting until we got to Pensacola where we were planning to have Mariso hauled so Hubby Dan could do a quick lower unit oil change. I was very surprised to see just a few scratches and dings in the bottom paint, which was an easy touch-up.

Stay Safe,
Mrs. Trombley

Sometimes it pays to be the slow boat! I hope I would have had the presence of mind to lift up the outdrives. That's a nice option to have.

So far, all of the flotsam I've speedbumped over has been in muddy chocolate milk water, and I haven't seen any of it. I guess I should just start cruising in clear water from now on.

The next morning, I felt like I’d had Domino’s and a terrible night’s sleep the night before. This is because I had. My mattress and I haven’t been getting along well lately, and replacing it is becoming a higher priority with every sore, creaky, early morning.

While coffee soaked into my joints to loosened them up, I called the Little River bridge to make sure they were still open for business. They said they were, so I warmed up ol’ Perkins and managed to get a fairly early start. I made it about a mile down the river when the coast guard made an unscheduled marine broadcast advising me that the Little River swing bridge was down for repairs, and that I should navigate the area with EXTREME CAUTION.

As soon as I was done swearing, I called the bridge again for clarification. Turns out the coast guard was never informed that the bridge was back up and running. Neat.

It didn’t matter what he said, really. If I’d gotten to the bridge and it hadn’t opened for me, I was just going to ram it until it did, or until I was short enough to fit underneath. Thankfully it didn’t come to that.

The weather was pretty much perfect as I crossed the border into North Carolina, escorted by a swarm of several hundred thousand center consoles. It was a considerable improvement in the scenery compared to the trip south. By this point, I’d gotten a bit bored with it, but I think most of that was due to several days of cold, gray, rainy January weather. Throw a little sunshine on the place, and it’s downright pleasant.

It was smooth sailing until I reached the Shallotte Inlet. A northbound cruiser ahead of me had encountered a spot of bother in the form of a small sand bar, and was on the radio with Boat US. He was able to get himself free, and once he’d determined that there was no damage, he was on his way again. Thankfully the Towboat stuck around until I passed through. The shallow spot could very easily have gotten me too if he hadn’t pointed it out. It was well inside the red buoy, and there couldn’t have been more than a couple of feet of water there.

I arrived at Southport marina around mid afternoon, and was welcomed by southwest winds blowing off the dock again. Thankfully there were no other boats moored nearby, and there were two strapping young dockhands there to catch my lines and reel me in. It took some doing, but we wrangled her to the dock just in time for the wind to stop blowing.

I wandered into the shop to check in and pay for my visit. As soon as I’d finished paying, I saw something on the shelf that I needed, so I picked it up and paid again. Then I saw something else on the shelf that I needed, and paid for a third time. I told the dock guys that it was my goal to touch the credit card reader as many times as possible, so that I would be sure to get corona’d.

‘Aw hell, we all got it anyway, so it doesn’t matter to us!’ they joked.

‘Well shit,’ I replied, ‘I’ve been in here for hours already. There’s no way I don’t have it. I guess since we’re all gonna die anyway, who wants to make out?’

I got a laugh, but no takers. Oh well, it was worth a shot. I took my swag and retired to Sylphide for the night, 39 miles closer to wherever the hell it is that I'm going.
