Day 130 Waterford NY. A 7am start to Waterford, we estimated it would take 8+ hours including a fuel stop and the first lock at Troy. The forecast was for fairly heavy rain starting mid afternoon. The winds picked up just in time for Finnish Line to have an interesting docking experience at the fuel dock as the there was only one person working at the marina and he didn’t meet us at the dock. Good thing there was no video?. At least the rain held off until the boats finished fuelling.
It was a rainy trip past Albany, the view from the river is not lovely, mostly very industrial. We had a short wait at the Troy lock, the rain eased off and we got through quite quickly. The picture is Ramble On coming out of the Troy lock.
It was a short trip to Waterford. Finnish Line managed to dock at the do-not-dock-here pump-out area and we didn’t notice the fact until we were nicely tied down – I blame the rain. The office staff said not worry about moving, it was highly unlikely anyone would come for a pump-out in the late afternoon, in the rain.
We went to McGrievie’s for dinner, not as good as we remembered but it was ok and there were leftovers to bring back to the boat.
