I’m anchored in Collins Bay just west of Kingston. Left Toronto Monday about 5:00 PM and got in here at noon Tuesday. Lovely trip, about 140 nm.
A front has just passed through, and I’ll head east tomorrow. Meeting family in Ganaoque Friday.
All systems are working well. Still have some work to do to get ready for big water, but can putter away at that on the Rideau. I still haven’t commissioned the generator – I need some fuel fittings – but am quite comfortable without it. This weekend will be a test to see how cooking on 12v goes.
I’m struck by how comfortable the boat is. I did a similar trip on Mazurka a few years ago and stayed on the flybridge most of the way. It’s much more civilized in the pilot house.
