En Route to Scharhorn
Tuesday, August 12, 1650
Weather: cool, clear
Gerhard gives you instructions where to meet Terrell and the boat, which is ready to go when you arrive. Terrell is a fairly impatient boy, with lots of questions about where you are going and why you're going there, and what you expect to find, and whether or not there's treasure, and have you done this many times before and if so where and how much did you find when you did it that time and so on and so forth until one of you has to threaten him.
The skiff is seaworthy but not in the greatest condition; it needs a paint job, the sails are patched and there's a certain amount of leakage. Terrell is certain of its doing the job.
At 6 a.m. you catch the lowest tide - it's a full moon, and the tide begins to rise noticeably after 10 a.m. (this passage edited), and by then you'll want to be well out of the flats between the western point and Neuwark. Terrell guesses it should take about two and a half hours to get to Scharhorn.
