On Wednesday, I took Gecko up the St. Geroge’s River and anchored out in Maple Juice Cove. It was my first time anchoring my boat, and my first big trip out solo. Maple Juice is the perfect cove; it has a shallow muddy bottom, and there are almost no other boats.
I spent one lovely night anchored out under the stars, but the next day a huge weather pattern rolled through.
The weather was brief, but intense. After about an hour of torrential rain, 30 knot winds, and nearby lightning, it blew itself out.
The good news was that Gecko didn’t drag at all!
