We can definitely feel the difference in the cupped props that were put on a couple days ago in Aqua Yacht Marina. Idle speed is much faster at 5.2 kts. Dale has had to adjust his docking and locking techniques so that we don’t come in too hot. The upper RPMs are about the same.
Canal section of “The Ditch” continued
I continued to be amazed at all the trees and tree stumps in the water outside of the dredged canal, to where water fills to the natural hillsides for shallow lakes.
Entry into the River Section mile 366.3
At mile 366.3 we left the Canal Section of the Tenn-Tom Waterway and entered into the River Section. When we hit the River Section the water depth dropped quite a bit as were back to part of a real river, the Tombigbee River. This section of “The Ditch” leverages parts of the Tombigbee River, other natural waterways and straightens out big ox bows. It became a little more populated and commercial.
We over nighted with GOOD LIFE on a free dock in Blue Bluff Recreational Area near Aberdeen, MS
The Locks – 3 in one day! Second day in a row.
Cookie cutter locks. They all look alike!!!!!! Must have used the same blue print on all the locks in “The Ditch”. (You get pictures anyway)
Fulton Lock and Dam mile 391.0 – first lock of the day
