A couple weeks ago, Travis, self-proclaimed First Mate (a title he gives himself in this video and definitely has earned!), shows you the Bogue Sound from our bow. We had a really great day with some nice wind for sailing. We started off in Swansboro, NC after a night at Dudley’s Marina and were headed past Beaufort, NC to Sanitary Seafood because we were craving some delicious shrimp!
Unfortunately, I yet again had engine troubles once we started her back up. We were just a few miles from Morehead City, NC when the engine overheated. We dropped anchor and I tried to trouble shoot but everything that worked in the past did not work this time. As it was getting dark and we were in the ICW with no great place to anchor I called the tow boat and they quickly got us to Portside Marina in Morehead City. We stayed there a couple days and I got the engine fixed up (busted a hose clamp and had a badly leaking fresh water cooling hose). We also enjoyed some of the absolute best food I had in months at Floyd’s 1921. I will seriously go out of my way to stop here again just to eat at Floyds!
The wind noise is a little much in this video. Sorry! We were just so happy to have wind!!!
