CT to FL Day 6
Annapolis, MD to Annapolis, MD
Had a rather wiggly night on the hook... was a bit windy and the waves kept us bouncing about a bit... slept like a log... Love being anchored opposed to a dock...

Not far to go today... only about 4 miles to Port Annapolis Marina located in Back Creek... new fresh water pump is shipping to Diversified Marine Services which is in the marina next to Port Annapolis Marina.

We pulled the anchor and were underway at 1030... and arrived to Port Annapolis Marina at 1130... Our location for night N38°57.824', W076°28.821'. We traveled today for 1 hour covering 4.0 nautical miles averaging 4 knots.

Picked up the new water pump at Diversified Marine around 1400... spent the afternoon installing it... port engine is now fully functional with a new fresh water pump...

CT to FL Day 5
Chesapeake City, MD to Annapolis, MD
We had a great visit with our dear friends Cathy and Jim Fisher while in Chesapeake City... we celebrated Susan's Birthday together at the Chesapeake Inn... an awesome afternoon.

Today was the day to search for a new fresh water pump... I was up well before sunrise and ready to go... no one opened until 0800...so I watched the sunrise and was it beautiful.

At 0800 I started making calls to the nearby Yanmar dealers... I called half a dozen and no one had a pump in stock... everyone had to order it from Mack Boring in NJ.

The dealer I talked to Annapolis said he could order and it would be to him the next day... the closer dealers all told me it would take 2 to 3 days to get the parts... we decided rather than wait we would go ahead and leave Chesapeake City and cruise to Annapolis on one engine... get a slip at the marina the dealer was located in.... parts arrive we would be ready to go.

We departed from Chesapeake City at 1100 and headed out the C & D Canal with a nice boost from the current... nut it was short lived and we were soon running less than 6 knots... 5.5 knots to be exact. This slower speed would have us arriving to Annapolis after dark so we decided to get close as we could and anchor and go into Annapolis early Tuesday morning.

We wanted to get a slip at the marina that Diversified is located but it was not the best place to stay... it is actually a boatyard and no amenities to speak of... if we are going to spend couple hundred dollars fro one night we want AMENITIES... So, we made a reservation at the closet marina and ended up saving some money,,, less expensive and it had all the amenities... even a dog pool... pretty cool! We'll see tomorrow when we get there,

Tonight we anchored about a hour from the marina a little bay just south and west of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge... Whitehail Bay... pitch black when we arrived and I am amazed we did not hit a crab pot going in to it... they were everywhere and you did not see them until you were right on top of them... running on one engine there is not really a lot quick turning... pure luck that we missed them all...

We were securely anchored at 1815. Our location for night N38°59.001', W076°25.596'. We traveled today for 7.25 hours covering 48.3 nautical miles averaging 6.7 knots.
