Glad to see you making progress and continued thanks for sharing pictures. The sailblogs map has you still back at Wolfe IS /Boldt Castle ?

Thanks, George. I'm behind on the blug and don't have exact positions for most of the pictures I've been putting up, but have now updated my position.

Hi Richard,
Much enjoyment living life vicariously thru you and following Issuma. What camera are you shooting with? Reason I ask is that here at the magazine we get a few cameras with gps positioning ability inside and I could mention your blog and travels to someone who would load you a camera in return for a review if you are interested. It might make for some interesting reading as well as some publicity for both involved. Hope to see you again soon and happy sailing. Scott

Hello Scott,

Good to hear from you, glad you're enjoying the blog.

Hope you are doing well and getting some good sailing in.

I started out shooting pictures for the blog with a Pentax Optio WP waterproof camera. When the custom battery in that camera died, I was in Brazil and unable to buy another one, so I switched to a non-waterproof Tron camera, which I used for a year until it got wet.

I then used a Nikon Coolpix for a year until it got wet.

For the last couple of months, I have been shooting the blog pictures with a Fuji Finepix S.

I also have a GoPro Hero waterproof helmet-cam, but I'm using that strictly for video (and am only at the learning stage of how to film with it).

Yes, I would be interested in using a camera with GPS in exchange for a review.

Great to see the current pictures Jordan. Why don't you identify yourselves in the Photos-- tag. Nice to see the wildlife that stalk your passage like the raccoon. A very prevalent problem in Toronto. Might make a business capturing them and shipping them back up here to the farm where we can put them to work pulling weeds and rebuilding the sauna.
Heard you were doing some repairs . Are you back on the chemin or are you going to hunt the curly black haired wood pecker on the French Island.
All the young down easterners are lining up to go to the AUM festival. Luke slept over last night on his way out to Jasper. Kaylah's got a sore throat and lots of pluck.
take care yer sea worthy rascals-- Hurrrr. Gord

View from the deck of Issuma of the lock doors opening after descending about 15m/50'. There is a lock worker standing up, watching, in the upper left of the picture.

Looking Up

Looking up the wall of a lock in the St Lawrence Seaway. The spreaders of Issuma are just visible on the upper left. Small vessels like Issuma do not use the bollards that are set into the wall in this picture.

This is one of the two American locks in the St Lawrence (the other five are in Canada). Jordan is tending the bow line here as we descend. In the American locks, you pass your lines (ropes) around floating bollards--the yellow steel thing labeled `5` that slide up and down the lock side with the water level.
