Trip to Memphis

A few days ago, we did a quick trip to Memphis to pick up a 500 lb anchor!  Visited with the folks on our way thru, so was a nice trip.

We'll need a "hurricane mooring" at our place in Oriental.  If a hurricane is threatening, we need to be able to take the boat out into the middle of the creek and attach it to a mooring ball.  This way, the boat will just "weathervane" in the high winds and rise/fall with the tides. 

Here's the anchor being loaded onto the back of our pickup.

We'll have to get approval from the folks who are in charge of the waterways, but should not be a problem.   We drove over 1000 miles in one day - a very long day!
