Will make Lake Michigan today. It will be almost 8 months since i have been there with Marianne. Hopefully it’s warmer down there because upper Lake Huron is still real cold. Notice the strait track from the stern. 40 plus year old Benmar Auto Helm.

My method of adjusting packing nuts. I last did it about 3 months ago in 75 degree salt water. Now the water is fresh and cold requiring another adjustment. I like to do it while under way always. Not at dock. The saft actually heats a little when running so in my opinion if you do it at the dock and get it just right it may not be the case when under way. This is only my opinion but works for me. #MissMarianne.

Amazing last day of the Erie Canal run to the Niagara River. Went through many cool little towns. Everywhere there was a lift bridge was worth of an over night …

I normally don’t like to post long videos but this one is of today. All day start to finish. Left Amsterdam, NY to Sylvan Beach. About 11 hours of running hard. Also helped not having any other boats around us so we managed 12 locks. Fuel stop in the middle of the video. #MissMarianne

Erie Canal Day 1 – Great Loop

Today we hit the Erie Canal. This Time Lapse is almost the entire days run west. We had the opportunity to run along with a couple Huckins Yachts Heading to Michigan but not before going through the Trent Severn Waterway first. We had the pleasure of meeting another Chris Craft Boat Club member, Todd Henzell. Marianne took the lead later in this run and we stepped up the pace just a bit. #MissMarianne

Time lapse of us running up the Hudson. We passed West Point in this segment

Lets burn some fuel! One more to share for today. Time lapse of us running up the Hudson. We passed West Point in this segment. I kept it short. I time Lapsed the entire 90 plus miles we ran today but shortened it to share here. Current was mild and weather early was interesting. #MissMarianne

1 Hudson

One part of the full day, 90 mile run up the Hudson to Albany, New York.

On the move again after 6 days of rain and miserable weather. If up to me i would turn this boat around and head about 800 miles south. But.. Today was actually a nice day and got some milage behind us. Bay Head Yacht Club has an amazing facility and even found a distant realative of Marianne. #MissMarianne
