Helping Chandara

I looked out and Chandera was gone. What? Got a message from Stevie Jane that Steve Johnson had been cut badly and was at the hospital. The Coast Guard moved the boat. I missed it all.

Came down in slack tide in the dark. Freaked myself out a bit. I don t like narrow places especially in the dark. Fortunately the marks and ranges were good. Dropped the anchor.
