Oct 1 Day 3 Tennessee River to Grand Harbor Marina


This was our first sunny day and a good day for photos. First I have to show off the new varnish on the Katy Leigh that was completed a couple of weeks ago by Florida based Yachtbrightwork .  A couple spent 10 days working on the boat at our marina. We cruised from 9:00AM (Hattitude had starting problems) to 5:45PM to cover 57 miles. One hour was spent at the Pickwick lock so our average speed was  7.4 mph. It was slow!  The worst place is just beflow the lock where the current runs at 4 mph slowing us down to 5 mph.  With no current we would be doing 9 mph.  The picture shows how the current builds up behind the buoys. The boredom was broken up with a eagle sighting, and the different homes we passed by.  One was built out of shipping containers. The Savannah Mansion is right beside Cherry Mansion which was the Union Headquarters during the Civil War.
