Pensaukee Harbor

After playing around in front of our cottage, I traveled north and entered the Pensaukee River. The channel leading to the river was very narrow and shallow marked with sticks on the way in. Once in the river, the channel deepened to around 6' but very weedy. I traveled up river only as far as the Swaer fish house then entered the lagoon. The entrance to the lagoon was very narrow. The depth of the lagoon was about 4' and extremely weedy. The entrance of the lagoon was much harder to get out than it was to get in due to a buoy in the middle of the channel. After leaving the river and channel leading in, I checked the raw water strainers and they were full of grass. I dropped anchor in around 8' of water then shutting down one engine at a time, I cleaned out the strainers. From there I headed back to Oconto entering the Oconto River around 1510 getting back to my slip at the yacht club around 1530.

Total distance traveled today was approximately 30 miles using approximately 22 gallons of fuel giving me about 1.4 miles to the gallon.
