We really wanted to ensure we didn’t get stuck out in the gulf for an extended period of time waiting for a wind shift, so we decided to wait for the morning weather update to make the final call. Kara and I made it an early night, filled tanks and just organized everything for the passage so we’d be ready if we could in fact leave. We also needed to be worried about the tide. Thursday AM thanks to that strong N/NW winds in the 30-40 knot range, Baboo was actually sitting on the bottom in her slip. Glad we don’t have a bolt on keel. We talked to several of the liveaboards in the marina who where also aground in their slips and evidently this was a very uncommon occurrence. The day before we backed Baboo into her slip (really cleanly I might add) right at low tide and had plenty of clearance. Evidently the heavy winds Wed night and all day Thursday had literally blown the water out of the bay, so that low tide was much lower than normal. The conditions had been improving Thursday afternoon and we suspected Friday AM we’d be clear of the bottom. If not, we’d be in our slip until later in the day, regardless of what we wanted to do.
