Post Mathew ICW...

I'm holed up in Hampton waiting for things to calm down- Any news/problems on Virginia Cut or Dismal Swamp canals? Also has anybody transited Dismal Swamp with 6' draft recently? I've always wanted to do the trip and with the high water I was wondering if my 5'11" draft was a possibility...

Isn't that four words?
Still looking for our next boat. Have decided we want to have something that will keep us happy for the next 10 years or so. By then I will be pushing 80 and if i am still sailing that will be a very good thing.

Well, the news is not very good. Over at they say

Some of what you might have heard may be true.
