Dataw Island, SC

This is our backyard for the next month or so. That statement is one of my favorite things about our new life living aboard!

Dataw Island Marina is a safe, gated community just outside of Beaufort, SC. The amenities are nice, the area is beautiful and rich in history. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The rates are average, electric is a flat rate of $35 which is not bad at all! They welcome liveaboards.

2) Our backyard at sunset

Sorry for the long delay in replying Dave,
that sounds like a great spot which I have probably passed by a dozen times(how bout a picture)
My spot in the Collins is just west of Kehole Is at 45deg 59'36" N
81deg 22'19" W
bow out, stern line ashore, several firepits but wood is getting scarce
only one boat allowed

This is across from the Bustards near Georgian Bay Fishing Camp

I love that spot. Was fishing that chanel when night fell once. 1st time there. Lost in my dinghy at night. (Yes, I know. Dumb as s*^t). Had to find my way down that chanel, hit a couple of rocks, surf out of Devils' Pulpit and back to the boat in the Bad River. Admiral was NOT amused. (Did I say "Dumb as s*^t?) Ah well. Dinghy is now equiped with a small survival kit for those occasional brainless episodes. (Hey, I was fishing.)

Speaking of the Bad River, here are a few interesting pics. The 1st is coming out of Devils Pulpit into the Bad River. The 2nd is of a line squall approaching the Bad River Anchorage. The 3rd is the line squall hitting us.
