We are now a motorboat for the Erie Canal. Had the mast dropped at RCR Buffalo, cost was $265 and we supplied the mast supports. They charge to make the supports and for the lumber if you do not bring your own. This is more than what I was expecting but we were here and they did everything and we did not have to help. On to the Canal tomorrow!

Very cool - I hope you are taking pictures.... after reading the wikipedia entry on the Erie Canal I am so bummed I'm not there with you..... Sounds like a fun start to the long cruise!

Are you still on a natural high from the idea of the trip, or is reality settling in?

Mike & Chris - Sorry we missed your send-off! We, like everyone else, are extremely jealous and hope you have a great time. Will try to hook up with you in Annapolis with the "crew" from here!
Safe Journey, Pat & Olli
