Started out beautiful. We left Southport early and we’re making great time sailing up the river. no humidity beautiful breezes, loving it. About noon Don notices the boat is listing to the port side. Concerned that we maybe taking on water he decides to sail into Anchor’s Aweigh, a working boatyard to have the boat taken out of the water and checked. After many inspections done by 3 men there is not a drop of water to be found. Perplexing to say the least. Decision time. We rented a car and went into Wilmington, NC for the night. Checked into a hotel and went out for diner. The next day we decided to spend browsing around Wilmington and then drive home. So, the great adventure comes to an end after 2 days. Got to see to the boat and find out “what the f” is going on. We leave the boat at the shipyard and head home. To be continued
hey ya all,
this is my first day on the water in the new nomad. as you know we are traveling north, hopefully, to cape code, MA. we left socastee, SC this morning approximately at 8AM and went as far as southport NC by 4PM. had the tides behind us and made excellent time twice as fast as motoring in the sailboat on the intercoastal water way (icw). we had a lovely diner at the Fishy-Fishy Cafe and are now back at the boat for the evening. we have good reception and are able to watch Netflicks. will probably be an early evening, as the first day is always tiring. Goodnight and God bless.
