Pals, Pigs, & Poltergeist In Wrightsville Beach

Alrighty, it’s time to tour Wrightsville Beach! This coastal town is certainly ranks as one of our favorite stops along the Intercoastal Waterway. Nice anchorage, wonderful sunsets, and loads of dolphins.

We make new friends, we see a pig being pushed around in a stroller, and Molly gets to go trick or treating. You won’t believe how much candy she hauls back to the boat! The kid is a candy magnet.

The boat is doing great, we’re doing wonderful as a family, and we have absolutely no regrets of our decision to embark on this sailing adventure. It’s been 100% incredible.

  1. Regarding your VHF wire problems, your wire is most likely ziptied (as you thought) in a bundle with any other wires that are inside your mast. These can be be replaced with the mast removed and the end cap -may- need to be removed. The ends of the zip ties are normally left untrimmed so that the untrimmed end will push against the inside of the mast. This prevents movement of the wires inside of the mast so that they don’t chafe.
