Engine trouble at a verrrrry inconvenient moment during the night (more on that later). Got a tow into Cape May for repairs, which won’t take long. A weather window is slamming shut, though, with 10 foot seas and 30 mph winds expected over the next several days.
So, after a hot breakfast we’ll split up. Paul and Jay will stay with the boat, holed up in Cape May until it passes. George and I will jump ship and head back.
I guess Barnegat Bay will have to wait for another time. Taking the train back, the quality of the view has already diminished considerably.
