We left the dock at around high tide around 8:00am. Winds were around 5-10 knots out of the south. It was clear and sunny, temperature around 80 F. Motored out of the inlet without event, the waves in the mouth of the inlet were decent due to the out going tide meeting the incoming waves. Once out on the ocean, seas were a nice 2-3 chop.
We wanted to try for the Morania, but both sets of numbers I had were off, and we could not find a wreck. We then tried the numbers I had for the Spartan again with no luck. So I decided to motor south, and about 30 minutes later we were hooked into the Delaware.
During my dive the winds picked up and shifted around to the SSE, increasing the seas to 3-5 chop with the occasional larger wave. After picking up our bouy we headed with the wind back to the inlet to be greeted by a blow out tide that hung us up just outside of our marina. We waited for the tide to come in, and then still could not back into our slip due to the low water. finally the water was high enough and we ended our day.
