Aground

Made it from Jacksonville to NAF Key West.  Spent a couple of days, then headed over to Garrison Bight to the mooring field.  When I arrived it was too windy to pick up an mooring ball (they don't have any tails on them) so I headed over to Sigsbee Island to anchor.  I have done this before successfully for over a month.  Short story, overnight thunderstorms, 40 knot winds, dragged anchor until I hit.  The rudder is trashed so the next couple of weeks will be sorting that out.

Ugh.
