On the Hard!
It's been almost a month since we returned to Warwick, RI from Block Island... We had a vibration in the starboard engine that was causing us some concern and we wanted to have it checked out before starting our trek south and finally today the yard hauled SAILS and we are sitting on the hard. The yard feels the problem is coming from the shaft and coupling and are going to check the engine alignment to see exactly what the problem is. Tomorrow they start the actual work.... they told us we should be back in the water by the end of the week... and I sure hope so as it's getting way to COLD for us here in Rhode Island... :)

Back In Warwick
We left Block Island on Tuesday September 21st at about 1130 hours to return to Warwick. Seas were predicted at 4-6 feet but we found them to be ocean swells with about a 15 second period between peaks... so it was like a gentle roller coaster ride in from the Block. We arrived at Brewers Greenwich Bay Marina in Warwick at approximately 1600 hours... a fast trip for us... normally it takes us about 5-1/2 hours... we had a favorable current with us the entire trip... cruising at over 8 knots most of the trip compared to our normal 7 knot cruising speed... :) We will spend a few more weeks here in Warwick while we have some repairs made to SAILS.... most likely starting our trek south around Columbus Day.

Back to the Block
Hurricane Earl is now just a memory and not much of a memory... we experienced very little rain and hardly any wind... so we left Warwick this morning and returned to Block Island... departing at 1015 hours.

Just before arriving to 1BI marker on the north end of Block Island we heard a hail on the VHF from a small boat that had run out of fuel... we were within visual range of them so we diverted our course to assist them. It was a 23' Grady White and we tossed them a line and towed them into New Harbor(Great Salt Pond) and dropped them at the Paynes fuel dock.

We returned to our previous anchorage location just off of Dingy Beach at N41°11.203, W071°34.398 and were securely on the hook at 1615 hours.

The harbor is like a ghost town... Hurricane Earl really killed the boating for Labor Day weekend... :(
