Yikes, we danced between storms.
Well, that was easy! Easy when nothing to horrible happens. The trusty 430 Lincoln engine did her job and loved doing it. Only two fill ups, or roughly around 50 gallons of fuel used in a 4 1/2 hr run from Oqaquan to Reedville VA.
The first fill up right under I95 rush hour
The one issue. Rain, lots of it. But thankfully no real heavy seas.
I had to hand run the Windshiled wiper. A part from the original I never fully replaced.. Its original though and the motor works.. Just needs another insert thing.
nailed around Colonial Beach!
We all huddled under the windsheild.. Perfect..ish. The top is on a trailer headed south..
The dam storm cloud and drizzle followed us for an hr
All old school, no GPS or radar crap, just the way dear old dad would have done it… with an Iphone
Were on our way..
There is a entire State, wait two States in there someplace. Thats a wall of storm were headed into. Yikes
We stopped at Tall TImbers MD a great place for a old school fill up and made it to Reedville for lunch.
At the dock near the bay! Tall Timbers Suzy shines
Amazing layout and the perfect woody boat
Sorry, no break downs, sinking, things popping off, nothing. As one of my co workers said.. What no Sharknado? Nope.. I suppose a clean run is always the best when the weather is more than iffy.
back under way
Scarlet found her perfect spot
Jimmy and his new Algonac Marine Cast shirt.
We were prepared for anything. Home made Marshmellows, and nabs. And beer in the cooler. What? What else is there? Oh Chips.. Sorry..
At the three hour tour stage i put on the Gilligan cap
At the dock! Phew!
Suzy heads home to her new home with jimmy!
Thanks to Jimmy, Dennis and Scarlet for making today a special day. I have wanted to make this run for over 10 years and today regardless of the crappy rain was the perfect day!
