So let me catch up with this adventure or more aptly "tale of woe". Left Fernandina Beach at about 6:30am on Sunday morning. Had a beautiful day sail. Weather was 5-10 out of Southeast Made great time all day with GPS predicting our Charleston arrival at around 6:30am. Great 24 hour run, but not to be. Even caught a nice blackfin tuna.
Dropped the ball at 6:15 and requested bridge opening with 2 boats following us through. Let them pass thinking they were more familiar. Great move until we tried to enter the Ashepoo Cooshaw cut. The boat we were following went aground and us right behind him. I tried to go right but too late we went into the mud. Luckily I was able to back off. We anchored, thinking we would wait for more tide as it was very low. A passing trawler gave us a heads up on the proper course so we tried it again snd made it.
