We made it to Oriental.
Last night we anchored at Campbell creek and it was COLD! We fired up the wood stove and managed to stay quite warm and toasty. Without it we would have frozen our "you-know-whats" off. It worked great and we were fine all evening.
Tonight we're at the Oriental Marina where we got nice HOT showers and thawed out our bones.
On the way here we sailed most of the way from our anchorage last night. The boat performed wonderfully. We had the wind at our backs most of the way and had none of the rounding problems we had before we added the skeg. We were able to balance the boat to near neutral helm and had a nice, if COLD, sail along the Neuse River.
Now, if we could just come up with a way to tow the dinghy comfortably...
