The Log of the SERENITY
"We sail into South Benjamin and try to anchor under sail only, again, but we have the bow of the boat in 6 feet of water and I yell for the engine. We back away safely under motor. We anchor for lunch near the entrance, then we move farther in to reduce our exposure to a SW swell, although there is still a northerly wind. Good thing we move because about 1800 the wind hauls all the way to SW, and we are now just in the lee of the windbreak from the western half of the island. We would have been really exposed in our first anchorage, and, even here, we are riding a surge and thinking about moving a third time."
