We snuggled in amongst Cruise Ships and Tour Boats to gain some protection from Tropical Depression Ernesto. Winds peaked at about 40 knots and the water level went up a foot above normal high tide so we were fortunate. WIth Intuition securely tied on the leeward side of the dock, we enjoyed most of the day exploring the National Aquarium.
Since having a good wifi connection has become important to us, we also took the opportunity to visit Port Networks. They make waterproof wifi bridges and antennas using power over ethernet specifically for boats. Their office is on the twenty-fourth floor of a building overlooking the harbor, so we got a good view of Baltimore. Also ended up buying their unit and it is enabling us to have a connection without having to leave the boat. We have 30 days to try it and see if it allows us to get better reception. So far, so good!
One side note on the TD Ernesto. The ABC tv crew was out filming folks. They set up the camera in a space between two building that really funneled the wind down to the water. It made for exciting video, but did NOT represent the reality of the situation.
