Chattanooga 2016 Hot Cruise

Goose Pond Colony to North Alabama Sailing Marina

Sunday September 25

We ate breakfast at the fishing store. They have wonderful biscuits. Then we left the dock to head down river.

Back at North Alabama Sailing Marina we cram packed the remains of the provisions in Debbie's car while the truck sat near the road. Now that the trip was over I could think about what to do with the truck.

This is my first real attempt at using Navionics to track progress against waypoints and calculate an ETA.

We soon reached home waters.

Another Chattanooga trip is done. Now for the nitty gritty of unloading and closing up the boat, driving home, unpacking, laundry and return to work.
