Hi - Marilyn here ...
Well, we finally slipped our lines today! But don't get too excited - it was only for a trip to the pump out, which we abandoned after the fourth time going aground. What was that about three-foot tides?
H-m-m- that must have been low tide ... another lesson learned experientially :). We now have a tide chart, as well as a membership with Tow Boat U.S. - though fortunately this time we didn't need to get towed.
The rest of the day was spent in finishing up all of the major tuning and testing jobs - the more minor tasks will get done tomorrow. One last laundry, provisioning jaunt and water fill-up, and we'll be ready to roll. No pics from today - we were too busy getting ourselves unstuck and redocked!
