No more skinny water!

With all the formalities of changing countries out of the way, it is time to move on.  We have a wedding in Rhode Island that we are trying to make by September 1st.  We will rent a car someplace along the way, park the boat, and go dance and be merry. ;-P

So, far the navigation is so much easier.  Wider rivers with a lot more depth.  But, it has been fairly slow moving.  Lots of cottages and everybody seems to have a small boat parked out front.  The locks are much bigger than what we have experienced so far on the Trent-Severn.

Onward we push to Winter Harbor Marina, hoping to get some simple repairs completed before moving on.

  1. The locks are huge!!! One thing that was different was that some of the locks don't have cables that are secured on the bottom. I held on the rope (slimy and gross) with one hand and used the boat pole to keep us off the wall. I am certainly getting a work out!! We did part of the Trent many years ago in a much smaller boat. Big difference in the 48'!! Still having fun!
