Aug 4 – First Attempt

Attempted to leave at 5:15 A.M. According to reports conditions were good to cross the bar at Slack Tide. Prepared Slow Dancer, started the engine, looked at the depth gage…..6 feet! We draw 6 1/2! What’s up? It is low tide…..maybe some underwater growth. Some questions as to if we will get out, but going to try. Listened to one last report…..”bar is restricted with 0 visibility”. What?? No way we are crossing one of the most dangerous river bars in the world with no visibility. Let’s see what tomorrow brings.
