      Hi Terry & Barb! Glad you’re following along. Yes, we are still in Grand Haven. The lake has turned really angry on us! We’ll keep you all posted.

    Bruce and Maria, It was fun talking with you today. Your trip brings back wonderful memories for Bill & I. Just remember to be safe, don’t let anyone rush you, and most of all enjoy your time together. Carol

    Sound like a good idea to ship your mast. We had to take our down on the river outside of New York City and travel with in a cradle for about 3 weeks. But the worst was when we crossed Lake Ontario with sea off the beam. It would rock back and forward, and even though it was tied down, the windward legs of the cradle would lift a couple of feet off the deck, and than come crashing down.
    You sound like you are have a wonderful time – just going to be interesting what the river feels like after Lake Michigan. We have done the inter-coastal waterway, but the Mississippi is another whole thing. By the way, you never said what happen to your self-steering?
    Let me know if you want some a Bill’s family to visit in Paducah.
