Wow - now that's a small world thing. Yes, I know the boat and previous owner quite well. I know he put a lot of money
into her at a top yard and only did things right. He pulled off the original winches and put a new, really high-end set on and gave another friend the old ones. My friend turned those winches into a mooring
There are a few B/40's in town - wonderful cruising boats. I was hoping that Wallace would wait to sell her to me when I got done with my trawler
Since you won't have a dinghy
, you probably won't be going into town. I'd just hang out at the inlet anchorage if the weather
is settled (wicked strong current
at mid-tide there). Consider going up past Georgetown
to Butler Island for another anchorage. It's nicely protected there.
We've anchored in both places.
For just exploring and getting some miles under the keel
, you could head
south to Port Royal Sound too. That's a long day sail as well. There are some marinas/anchorages around Hilton Head
or head up the river to Beaufort
