AGROUND in 2 Feet of Water – Let’s Inspect the Bottom Paint! (MJ Sailing – Ep 160)

Does our boat do well drying out at low tide? We’ll pretty much find out!!

We chose the spot we anchored in because we knew we could get in with a shallow draft, but what we were not expecting was for the tide to fall so low that we’d be sitting in 2 feet of water! But, since we had the opportunity, we used that time to inspect our bottom paint we applied last spring to see how it’s held up over the past year without a single cleaning.

Using the beautiful sunny day we had, we took the dinghy, as well as Georgie, over to the neighboring island of St. Martin to enjoy their white sand beaches. Looking around, it was hard to tell we were sitting in a corner of England. It looked way too Caribbean to be so far north!

Lastly, we went to the posh island of Tresco to spend a few days. Beautiful hikes awaited us, and a secret little lookout over the sound and all the boats anchored there. Definitely an island group that is a little slice of paradise and we were pretty sure we could spend months there exploring it.

We hope you enjoy!

Much love from the Isles of Scilly!
Jessica, Matt & Georgie
