Cutting the Lines

After 2 1/2 years we left the dock.

Isle of Hope Ga was agreat piece of heaven. We will miss her.

Left at 3 pm for an outside sail down to St. Mary’s Ga. For the annual Thanks Giving cruise in at the Riverview Hotel.

Took 14 hours, no wind. Had to motor the whole way. Seas built all night, to 5 to 6 feet and rough ride.

Issues on the trip:

*Front running lights did not work. Had to use a battery backup.

*Went to anchor and the chain came off the roller and wrapped around the bow sprit. Then trying to leave we snagged a rope, lost a boat hook pulling the rope of in the water. Had to do aman over board drill to retrieve. Lol

*Generator shut off for high exhaust heat. Ended up being the water pump drive belt stripped.

*Charge controller failed. So we couldn’t recharge batteries, but there e is no sun.

Well we have a slip reserved in St Simons Ga to fix and upgrade these issues.
