Back to Home Port, New Bern NC

Well, I'm all safe and sound, back in a comfortable slip here at the hotel marina in New Bern.  70 miles today from Swansboro...Did someone mention FOG?  What do you do when you look out the window of the boat and see nothing...(pic1)  You find the next markers on your trusty chartplotter, then match the markers on the trusty Radar, then set the "NIA" on course ...and soon...(hopefully) the marker appears out of the haze!   Interesting, but 3 hours of this was quite enough.

Thanks for following along on my journey north.

  1. Dave, glad to see you are back in New Bern. Hope to see you next weekend. I am coming down for a couple of days. Stuart...Bed Boat & Beyond

  2. Welcome home Dave. Glad you made without incident. As you know, fog is nasty stuff and never to be taken lightly. Three hours in pea soup can really work on your nerves. I am sure you were ready for cold one once you got tied up. Cheers!
