0630 865 WHL Walked to a marine contractor business that I saw yesterday. He had a piece of pvc pipe about 10 feet long that would fit over the handle of the rake I bought. Now I had what I needed for an attempt at finding the anchor.
0730 Got underway. The timing was perfect to get through the swing bridge. A charter boat was just leaving the fuel dock going my way. Being a commercial vessel they opened the bridge for him and I followed.
0720 Weather was much better. Seas flat, overcast but humid. Continued on at slow cruise just enjoying the sights.
1400 The wind started picking up but I was in protected
water so no problem.
1730 Got to the place where I had lost the anchor but it is blowing too hard to attempt to anchor. I’m don’t want to get blown up on the mud again. Found a dock about 1/4 mile away and tied up there. Did housekeeping chores and fixed dinner.
2000 Just about dark decided to take a walk on the shore. Walked across the island. It got dark on me so I came on back to the boat.
2145 Attached the pvc to the rake. I’m ready to attempt the salvage.
