03 December 2010 | Oswego, NY
I intended to get the masts stepped (put up) at the marina in Oswego, however, after they looked at Issuma's masts, they figured they were too heavy for their crane, and recommended I go 30 miles west to Great Sodus Bay, where they have a 70ton crane.
So I motored out of Oswego Harbor at first light. I haven't quite gotten used to having the masts down, and wanted to avoid waves as much as possible (so nothing on deck could roll loose), so I left early, while the wind was still light. The picture shows the lighthouse at Oswego.
