    Nice.

    Did you have any concerns about running aground?

    Always, but keep a close eye on the charts and all was good.
    Dismal never got less than 5 feet.

    You betcha...
    Left Potomac River, hit Chesapeake Bay, then VA Beach (short stint in Atlantic).
    Then to Norfolk for a visit...
    Then the ICW
    Then to James River (ghost fleet)
    Then to Tangier Island
    Then back up the Potomac

    14 days total and in a 25 foot cruiser to boot. Nearly 700 miles total.
    About 3,000 in fuel costs alone.

    Was very cool and very good experience.
    My first time in "big water" and in a "lock" so next time around....
