Lock 17 warning

Before you enter Lock 17 make sure you close all upper hatches and be prepared for a short shower on deck. The East gate of this lock is a lift gate and you motor under it leaving the lock as it drips on you. We scrambled to close everything while in the lock so as to keep everything below from getting wet!

Sounds like you're pros at locking!

Thanks for the info on lock 17. I passed it on to a friend leaving Sandusky for the canal in his Catalina Sept first. He's on his way to Edgewater which is just south of New Smirna Beach, Fl.

Stay safe out there...John

Doh! That's not a little shower either if I'm looking at it correctly
