We decided to sail as if we didn’t have any water leak and take it day by day. We’re finally on a plan to get to Maine. I ran to shore one more time with our garbage. The packaging form chicken and pork would get pretty stinky by the time we get to shore again. Dave cleaned raw water engine screen and the water maker screen and readied the boat to leave.
We left about 11:30am in fog. We used our mechanical fog horn to have one prolonged blast every 2 minutes. Funny, we have never heard anyone else’s fog horn, but at least we’re covered. The fog cleared at the mouth of the Narragansett bay. We headed through Buzzard’s Bay to Penzance Bay outside of Wood’s Hole. This looks like an interesting place to visit on our return trip. We had fog again by the time we anchored.

We planned our day around the tide in the Cape Cod Canal. You want to be traveling with the current and close to slack tide. The current is too strong to motor against. Close to slack tide, we would have more control.
