Wrong way to Louisville

In Uncategorized on 26/11/2010 at 04:30

On Sunday the 21st I went below in the cabin to avoid an embarassing situation- hard to believe when your by yourself- and I got turned around and went back up the river for two miles before a chance call from Craig keaton saved my bacon. rest of day was good and got to Louisville about 3 pm. LOUISVILLE IS BEAUTIFUL along the river . Next day left to a clear calm day to go thru the locks at the falls of the Ohio. Wind picked up about 5 miles downriver. was supposed to be 15 mph but started gusting to 35-40. Had to emergency anchor in a small channel with a swift current and high winds. Rode it out for 24 hours and lost 2 anchors in the four foot seas. Great way to start the day. Took of the next day life a house afire and made fifty lies through the macalpine lock. That day was great 50 miles of wilderness and limestone cliffs. On 11/24 I moved on in 37 degree windy rainy weather until I found an anchorage at Sinking Creek that night I had to reset my one anchor twice once a 3 am when a 25 mile wind shot down the creek like a wind tunnel. Need more anchors. Made rocky point Marine at mile 719 in sight of carrolton damn. Will Stock up tommorow maybe at wall mart or the marine store here.
