Now at the bottom lock. Tomorrow I’ll travel north for a bit, then will take a break from boating for a few days. I’ve been aboard and mostly underway since June 1.
Yesterday and today have been very relaxed. Reprovisioned and ate out in Trenton today. Yesterday I stopped in Belleville to refuel. Fellow 34 owner Rob flagged me down and I enjoyed a visit with him, with cold beer and barbecued steak.
Fuel fill-up stats: 32 days, 751 nautical miles traveled (~1400 km), 139 hours main, 68 hours generator. That’s a lot of gennie time for me but I ran the AC a lot and was only plugged in a few days. It’s been hot. Total fuel used: 737 l (195 US gal). Just in case you were curious…
I’ve seen a few wild birds that were very comfortable around boats and people, like this one hanging out at the Belleville marina.
