|Last day heading north. Tomorrow, west!|
When we left Cedar Key there was just a little wind, and the seas were around a foot. It was on our beam for the first bit as we headed clear of shallow water. Once we turned the ride smoothed substantially. As the day went on, the water got calmer and calmer, dwindling down to maybe 3 inch waves. If you can even call them waves at that point.
Mostly the ride was about diligence and paying attention. Even though we were in deeper waters we were in Florida, which means crab pots everywhere. There were sections of the trip that was more of a slalom ski course than a boat ride.

The waters here are very tea-like; a clear brown. It reminds of the of tannin waters of the Pungo River and it's tributaries. We're in a more piney area, so it makes sense the waters would be brown.
|We have 2 depth gauges, one for each hull.|
In this pic, one reads 5.2, to other 5.7.
That's feet below the keel. Yes, it looks like water is everywhere, BUT IT'S NOT!
