Funny story. While on the loop we met another looper whose boat's name was Tiki Queen. The couple's name was Leland and Karen McClellan. Oh yeah. Apparently his ancestors founded McClellanville! I always wanted to discuss the condition of his small marina. But that's not a friendly thing to do.
So here we are a year later and, viola, the boats are gone. I mentioned that to the dock master. She said they did clean out those boats but 3 more derelict boats have managed to get on the pier. It's a never ending battle, she said.

Problem 2 was the tide. The current at St. Johns Yacht Harbor is formidable until very near slack. Today that wasn't until 11:30 am. Getting a later start of course meant getting in late to Georgetown.
Lastly, Georgetown marina didn't have space for us today (our reservation is for Tuesday). We thought we'd anchor out near the marina tonight and get in early the next day.
We pushed off the dock around 10:30 am with John and Martha tossing us our lines one last time. As the day progressed we wouldn't get into G-town until 7 pm. Days are long, so there'd be plenty of light, but why push? We had a couple of hectic days behind us, so let's turn in a little early. Heck, they had space for us in McClellanville.
Glad we did stop. The place looks great. It's peaceful and quiet here. And I need a nap.
