Trip So Far

End of Day 43:

  • 23 travel days
  • 15 locks
  • 1419 miles
  • 1001 gallons of fuel
  • Key Learnings:
    • Boat is still running well
    • Can't find parts for a 30 year old windlass, so installed a new one
    • The farther south we go, the nicer the river scenery
    • We don't handle continuous 95 degree days well
    • Don't assume that they did not use metric anchor chain 30 years ago
    • Measure 3 times (not twice) before drilling or cutting (something here about age and memory)
