Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

Fighting the current, in Charleston.
Found a marina for under $500 with amenities.

Really? Kinda far off the beaten track. Is your wife leaving with you or is she staying with the boat?

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

Killer weather in Charleston this week, will feel like you're "south". I stayed in that location one winter, but it was a ramshackle place called Buzzards Roost. New place should be nice, but I had a car when I was there.

Scoob how long did you fight the falling tide? One of the benefits of having all this daylight to work with is you can delay your entrance for slack or helpful current - whatever conditions demand. I'd probably heaved to and goofed off for awhile and fished for spanish, tidied ship, cooked, rested, etc and waited for the flood - if the conditions were right and all of that. Just something to keep in mind. You can also look at the tide before you leave, as part of your planning, and time your passage for optimal time. Sometimes just slowing down a bit can do it, but I do understand the impetus to keep pushing at times, even if it is slower or harder on the engine.

Don't know where you are, but I think you'll hit Elliots cut at a decent time. That next bridge you open up, that section up to the Stono can easily have 5 knot currents and I have heard of 6-7. Just be aware of that if you are sailing around the harbor this winter. You're in a great place to learn to sail.

Congrats on a good first run, hope you get a few days to goof off in the 70 degree weather-

Scoob, I hope you have a car lined up for your wife. St John's is in the middle of nowhere. And last I checked, they don't have shuttle service. And no stores are within walking distance.

Is the Noisy Oyster restaurant still there? Hopefully something new and better has replaced...

We surfed the rapids at that narrow cut, was super fun.
Two smaller boats were anchored because they didnt have the speed.

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

There are a few 5star restraunts in town.

That's true. But if I remember correctly, there isnt anything close or within walking distance.
