It was a rainy night but no leaks so we didn't mind at all. We left about 7:45AM and encountered our first lock within 20 minutes. There were 7 more locks along the Oswego River. Lunch was at a restaurant called Lock 3 at Fulton NY. It was good but service was slow. Almost everyone there was all dressed up for Saturday lunch. I needed to find a check valve for the aft head as part of a plastic pipe had cracked and was leaking lake water into the bildge. We had no luck in Fulton but when we go to Oswego we took a taxi to a new Lowes and got all the parts I needed. This evening I glued various pieces of pipe together and it now appears to be fixed. Oswego is impressive from the canal which runs along side the Oswego River (see photo). There is a flight of 3 locks that take you down to the Lake Ontario level. The marina we are in is a municipal marina owned by the city. It is the best one but there was no power in our slip so we are using the generator. It is mostly for charter fishing boats that go out into the lake. The 'expert' say we should be OK to cross tomorrow. A family of 4 just came in on a 40 ft Silverton. They bought it in Connecticut and are importing it into Canada as they live in Port Severn on Georgian Bay.
