Getting an anchor down, however, was trickier. While the anchor stuck happily in the mud we thought the islands here would give us a bit more protection. No matter where we dropped it we always ended up closer to the boat behind us than we liked. On our last attempt we backed down on the anchor hard. We're confident we'll stay put.
|Dawn at Peck Lake. Nice anchorage.|
But don't wander... parts of the lake are shallow.
|We're anchored near the mooring balls.|
Originally, that's what we were going to do.
Then we heard they were "rafting" people on them.
Nope, don't trust them that much to hold
both us AND another boat.
This was taken yesterday. We'd just explored Manatee Pocket
and were headed out. There were a nutso quantity of boats
and this vid shows how tough navigating can be.
This kind of stuff makes us sad. We called the sailboat and
arranged a slow pass. And then....
Damned near pushed us into that red, too.
We're planning on getting together for dinner tomorrow night, with both the Apres Sail and Bella Gatto crew. I'm confident we'll have a plan after that.
Pretty unusual. We always pass sailboats, but rarely when they
are sailing. Usually they are puttering under power or out
and about, enjoying a bay. But a steady south wind made for
great north travel for the sailboats.
