IMPROPMTU TICE'S SHOALS RENDEZVOUS!
« on: September 27, 2017, 08:58:49 PM »
Hey all you gnarly wharf rats: A few of us are thinking of overnighting at Tice's this weekend. Weather looks nice, boat traffic is down and the water is still clear and warm. So, who'll throw their hat in with us??

Right now thinking maybe Friday alone, sail back Saturday to pick up Lesa. She doesn't want to do 2 nights. So Friday is still up in the air, might not have time to gear up for a Friday night. :/

Friday is a no go, just too much to get together after work. Planning on a Saturday morning departure, sail for a bit then end up at Tices for the overnight.

Same here, Kev. I'd like to sail on Saturday and end up over at TS. Hope you can make it, Larry. And I think Dennis is in!

Of course when I plan to do an overnight at Tices the wind is forecasted to blow all night. :/

Forecast seems to have improved some. We'll have nice winds today with some NE winds tonight which means a comfy ride at anchor. Rain forecast has disappeared. Yay!! I plan to cast my lines around 10 or 11, sail north a bit and end up at TS around 3 ish for a swim and a beer!

Ellen finally returned form Ausrin TX (FEMA hurricane month+ deployment), and you guessed it, I am in trouble for condition of house.  Something about the beagle dog making a nest.form my clothes left on floor.  I responded is was good multi-use recycling and allowed me more time to sail.

Yes, that was like dropping 8lb danforth anchor on big toe.  I should learn to say "yes ma'am" more often.

I only have time to stand off Silver Bay, and not able to meet the southern bay squadron today.
Need to bring beagle to vet late afternoon...something about cleaning ears his ears daily, which is hard to do from boat....

THE WIND!!!! ....and the wet/cold. Great crazy sail, but rough at anchor. We decided to turn tail and head for home at 5:30.

Comfortable seats, Lesa at helm, and rail in water, it does look like great sail....
