The hard part is over.... I think
20 September 2009 | Catskill NY
I can't believe the week went by so fast. We arrived in Catskill about 2:30 on Saturday afternoon. I was not planning being here until Sunday night.
We had spent Friday night at the #2 Gate Guard in Waterford and made quick trip though the flight of 5 locks. Starting down the Hudson River our SOG (speed over ground) was over 7.7 knots but that didn't last long as the tide reversed. By the time we got to Catskill we were bearly doing 4.8 knots.
Rick and Jim will be with me until around noon today. We have a 9 am appt. to get the masts back up.
I'll have a few days to get the boat cleaned and rigged and maybe a project or two before Beckie arrives next weekend.
Now that I have internet, I'll get some pictures posted and catch you up on the canal trip later today
