Castleton-On-Hudson

We took off from Waterford about 8:30 when fog lifted to get to the Castleton-On-The-Hudson. To get there we went through Troy - The Town of Uncle Sam, as it's advertised. We are not sure yet why Troy is the Uncle Sam's favourite, but I am sure we'll find out soon. But nevertheless. So we were heading up for our last one lock on our jurney through the New York Canal System. The lock master decided to make us wait for the barge and the towboat which was fighting with the barge pushing it right and left. Anywho, the barge was big and we were little and lock masters are like gods so we were told, so we got out of the way and waited. And waited. And waited some more. After an hour we were finally in the lock. Soon after we're motoring through Albany, New York and I tried desperately remember the name of the girl I know from there. Girl if you read this, let me know. I'll call on my way back in the spring! About 2pm we reached Casetlton Boat Club where for $50 you can use their manual, self-service crane which we used to put up our little mast. Our mast is little in comparison with some other boats we've met on the way. Ours is just 35 feet. Even though I did this only once before setting this up was a breze. Except there is a massive wake from the boat traffic on Hudson. While working on our little ship we've seen some mega ships passing by shaking the whole boat club since their docks are floating freely with the wake. For the night we set the hook at the other side of the river from where we are sending you the warmest greetings.
