CT to FL Day 25
Pawleys Island, SC to Charleston, SC
We departed from Heritage Plantation Marina at 0700 just before sunrise... Destination for today ??? I discovered a leak in the port engine fresh water pump a few days ago... shaft seal leaking... been topping the water off each morning... While we were at Osprey I was able to get a new pump ordered from a Charleston Yanmar dealer... the dealer is located on the Wando River... 14 nautical miles up river from the ICW... so the destination we had planned as we left this morning was get as close as we could to the dealer and anchor... continue to their location in the morning pickup the new water pump and repair the engine while at their dock.

Well as plans go it all fell apart and the water pump ended up getting shipped to the Charleston City Marina rather than the dealers location on the Wando River... long story short... we can pick our part up at the Charleston City Marina but to pick it up we have to get dockage there... $$$$$$ cost more than we like to pay for dockage but what can you do... we need the part. So, we made a reservation for Wednesday and will repair the engine there.

We did have a good day for favorable current pushing us 7 to 8 knots all day... well except McClellanville area which we hit a low tide and due to the shallow depth 5 to 6 ft deep... we ran at just above idle speed for several miles...

We arrived to Charleston and anchored off the Charleston City Docks at 1615. Our position tonight is N32°46.540', W079°57.181'. We traveled today for 9.25 hours covering 64.5 nautical miles averaging 7.0 knots.

CT to FL Day 24
Myrtle Beach, SC to Pawleys Island, SC
Waiting on forwarded mail... had mail forwarded USPS Priority 2 day mail... shipped form Florida on Dec 8th... should of been hear easily by Saturday Dec 11th... hopefully in mail today.

Our mail arrived at about 1430 and we decided to move south for a few hours... lines clear of dock at 1500. We had hoped to make it to Georgetown, SC but the current on the Waccamaw River was no in our favor... slowing us to under 6 knots... opted to call it day and stop at a Heritage Plantation Marina on Pawleys Island, SC. Reserved a slip through DockWa… approximate ETA 1800.

We arrived to Heritage Plantation Marina and were secure at the dock at approximately 1815. Our position tonight is N33°26.641', W079°10.542'. We traveled today for 3.25 hours covering 19 nautical miles averaging 5.9 knots.
