We had hoped to sail east to Cape Look Out for a day or two then sail off shore to Wrightsville Beach. Unfortunately weather is not cooperating, so we give up on that idea. So back to our “overheating” problem. I swap out our raw water cooling pump with a spare, to see if that could be the source of our problems. In the afternoon we walk to downtown Beaufort, mainly to find ice cream. We walk down with Steve & Debbie Graves who we first met at Elizabeth City. Beaufort is not particularly busy with the recent hurricane, some restaurants are still closed and many Inns have workers staying at them instead of tourists. We have a very windy night on the dock and I assume we will need help to get of the dock in the morning.
