November 19, 2001

There is a black power boat named BLACK something (Swan?) which tows the dinghy on a very long line - longer than our boat. So when he passes us, we can't cut in right behind him to avoid his wake or we will get caught in his dinghy tow rope.. Later, we mentioned him to Norm and Jan and Jan said that Norm had spoken to him about towing his dinghy that way. Others have also had a problem - he pays no attention. The power boat MEANDER passed us again (for about the 3rd day), and a very large power boat named CALYX with the man on the bridge talking on the cell phone and not paying any attention, and also the trawler tug KNOCK OFF that we saw up at Barefoot. SEA YA calls back to us and tells us that she sees otters playing around, but all I see are mud plumes in the water. The winds were light, and we put up the staysail. AMERICAN EAGLE, the small cruise ship passed us going north, and then SEA YA went into Cattlepen Creek to anchor. We went on down to the Wahoo River, and anchored up the river about 1.25 miles in 16+ feet of water after 42 miles. There is someone anchored way up the river, and TRUE LOVE (Bob talked to him in Beaufort SC)came in and anchored too. He's single handing.
