Paint booth at Winter Harbor MarinaLast night was a record cold, but today was beautiful day warming up into the 60's. This morning we toured the new paint booth which was used to paint the Katy Leigh this morning. It can hold an 80 foot boat. We found out the epoxy paint they use works out to a cost of $1000 per gallon. Katy Leigh was first in the booth. We got lucky because now there are boats, transport trucks, and construction equipment lined up waiting. Winter Harbor apparently has the only paint booth for large vehicles for miles around. Next we went to a Holiday Inn Express and used their WiFi to download the software needed for the cell phone to be able to access the network. Then it was south to North Syracuse to provision the boat for the trip. Tonight I installed the DirecTV satellite antenna. It took about 2 hours to find the satellite but once found it works well. Unfortunately we can see Nashville TV as the transponder does work this far north. Tomorrow we will travel the Erie and Oswego Canals and to get to Lake Ontario. We expect to cross the Lake on Sunday if the weather is favorable. In a west wind with 200 miles of fetch the Lake can get pretty rough.
