Calm and cloudy

The decision’s been made.  This summer “Slow Dance” will be cruising the Chesapeake Bay!  Plans are for:

  • First night: Harborwalk Marina, Georgetown, SC
  • Second night: Myrtle Beach Yacht Club, North Myrtle Beach, SC
  • Third and Fourth nights: Joyner Marina, Carolina Beach, NC
  • Fifth night: Top Sail Island Marina, Surf City, NC
  • Sixth thru eighth night: Beaufort, NC
  • Ninth night: Belhaven, NC
  • Tenth night and beyond:  Open to suggestions, but know that barring the unforeseen, we’ll be heading to Elizabeth City, NC and then up the historic Dismal Swamp Canal to Chesapeake, VA before continuing a far north on the Bay as Annapolis and/or Saint Michaels.

UPDATE:  “Slow Dance” now has “her” AWESOME new Garmin electronics package, the Cummins valves are adjusted, and as “precautionary” maintenance the Cummins and Kohler have new impellers.  Last, but not least, the hull gets a thorough inspection, cleaning, and zincs replaced as needed.  Now just counting down the days!

This summer’s cruise will be “Slow Dance” longest cruise since traveling from Fort Lauderdale to Ross Marine, where we dropped her off to correct issues discovered during her pre-purchase survey.  On this cruise, she will be proudly flying her American flag, her and America’s Great Loop Cruisers’ Association burgee.

Follow along as this summer’s adventure unfolds!

Oh Captain, My Captain

 

 

Happy New Year, Cruisers!

May all of your 2018 cruises be as beautiful as the New Year’s Day sunset!

The beauty was there as the sun started to set…

and grew more dramatic as it slipped beyond the horizon.

Fair winds and following seas.
