Me again , nobody else seems to find the time to add to the blog.
Day 6 we traveled from Hastings to Peterborough 34 miles. Tied up along the wall by the Holiday Inn and watched the Tragically Hip. Looking like rain.
Day 7 left Peterborough 09:00 and headed for the famous bathtub lock. Very high winds forecast for the whole day and it was, 70k plus. Did a total of 11 locks today as far as Buckhorn Lake. Going to try to make Fenlon Falls tomorrow so Janice can get her ice cream she remembers as a young child.

Mechanic got here early 0:800, had the fuel lift pump out in 1hour and replaced by 10:30.
Cast off shortly after and headed for Hastings On. Arrived 4:30 we will spend the night here and shove off early tomorrow.

Day 4 has been interesting. Mechanical issues with port fuel lift pump. Tim’s truck came to the rescue and will have a part for us first thing tomorrow. Yay!!!! Today was spent doing little repairs and consuming some bevvies.
Lock 11 & 12 the last of day 3, which was a long day. We were lifted over 50 feet going through these locks!
Day -2 was a rain day stayed tied up at Trenton Port marina.
Headed up the Trent -Severn waterway, traveled through 12 locks. Moored on the municipal wall at Cambellford for the night.
We started our great loop adventure a day early Aug-15 ,2016 @ 11:20.
A minor glitch we were grounded at our slip. That water level had gone down considerable. Finally got her moving and headed out towards Trenton Port Marina.
A 6 hr trip, great weather
Weather storm had moved into the area for today will probably stay in Trenton today and start the Trent Severn waterway tomorrow Aug. 17.
