May 22nd West of Guard Gate 2 NY — Grounding Update

As arranged, the tow chap phoned late afternoon to discuss their arrival Monday. There had been a squall mid afternoon but around 5pm another, stronger squall went through with heavy winds. During the phone call Bob had to rescue a solar panel that came off and ironically as they were talking Bob saw that we were now back in the channel — the winds had pushed us off!

We’re now happily anchored just off the channel, in 25’ of water, thank you very much. We’ll be off early tomorrow. The first group of boats from the flight of five locks arrives around 9:15/9:30 so we’ve got the lots of time for morning coffee before we leave.

Here’s a shot from the back of boat showing us on the edge of the channel. The second picture is a view of where we sat for the last two days.
