Chesapeake City and Cape May
Friday July 09, 2004

We were finally underway at 11AM on Thursday, July 8th. As soon as we pulled out from Saltworks Creek on the Severn River we noticed a vibration. The boat also had lost 200 rpm at the cruising throttle position so it was clear that we had a full crop of barnacles on the propeller. A few quick calls and we arranged a diver to clean the prop and hull. Two hours later we were on our way to the C&D Canal. See the picture above. We had a great meal on the deck of the Chesapeake Inn and were serenaded by the "Blue Cat Blues" Band.

Friday morning we were underway for a run down Delaware Bay. The wind was from the North West and light. An ebbing current pushed us an additional two knots so we were making over twenty knots for forty miles.

We are in a slip at the Canyon Club in Cape May and are looking forward to the run tomorrow up the New Jersey coast to Sandy Hook. The Saturday weather looks good but we always keep our fingers crossed. Tomorrow's run will be about 120 miles.

We are hoping to meet up with my son, Joshua and his wife, Gwen at the Atlantic Highlands for a dinner together.
