  • Frankfort (going south)

    We made it to Frankfort today approximately 40NM in 8 hours. Not bad considering we were slogging into 4-7′ choppy, 2 second period seas. We said a few prayers today for safe passage and we made it. SAM was below with hatch and doors shut most of the trip and I had on the life vest and safety tether & HARNESS.

    We broke a few more things on this passage so the repair list keeps getting bigger. Eight hours pounding straight into and 45 degrees at 20 knots winds is not really pleasure boating but the forEcast was more of the same for the next 3 or 4 days. Once you round Betsy Point things get calmer relatively.  We are hoping the a the remainder of the trip is less exciting.
