I’m reminded again of why I like upstate NY so much. This is the transient dock, free for visitors, with washrooms and showers. Restaurants in the old downtown a few blocks away.
Tuesday and Wednesday I spent cleaning and waxing the topsides and getting groceries and supplies. There was a lot of brown staining from the rivers, but it came out pretty nicely. I also found a big hunk of rope wrapped in the shaft and prop. I had dragged a crab pot in SC and had some driveline vibration after. Guess that explains that!We launched Thursday, and headed north on the Hudson River. I anchored here and continued on this morning.
We’re above lock 1 in Troy here, at the fork in the waterway. North to Lake Champlaign and then to the St Lawrence, or west on the Erie Canal to the Great Lakes. Im going west.
