It's been years since I changed one, do you still put white grease on it?

If so, pop the cover occasionally and put more on it.

I've always lived on the coast. This seems weird to me for some reason.

Yachting in Tennessee...

Looks like the bridge at South Pittsburg. You're getting close. When you get through the lock look for a dock on your port side going upstream. That is Shell Mound park. You should be able to tie there for the night.

BB, do a google search for VOL NAVY.

Yachting on the TN River is fun as long as you can outrun the banjo players.
Seriously...the upper TN River is beautiful and the cruising is very very nice.

Shellmound is a great (free) dock to tie off on for a good night just above Nickajack....lots better than Hales Bar but you didn't hear me say that.

Soggy- as you know- 9 out of 10 times when Chickamauga lock is closed, the gorge between downtown chatt and hales bar is usually closed as well. It has been open/close last couple of weeks it seems from the emails I've been getting from Corps of engineers.

David- did you decide on a "home marina" yet?

This is interesting to say the least. ALso, I've learned about locks. Out here, it's mooring cans or anchoring and flat or big seas.

David, the white sauce went bad when you crossed over to Tennessee. That stuff doesn't work up here.

You'll like Tellico.
I've anchored several times in the cove you are at just about shellmound...very nice anchorage. Not much between there and downtown Chatt as far as anchorages go but it is a very nice section of the river that you will enjoy.
I'd say stop by and see me at Island Cove but sounds like you'll be there, or thereabouts, by tomorrow, and I have been out of town for about 3 weeks and not in Chatt tomorrow unfortunately. If you run into any mechanical or other boat issues from here on up the river to Tellico let us know and we can make sure you get the best folks out there to help you.

My new best friends and I will be docked at downtown docks in Chattanooga. .75 a ft no electric. $1.25 with electric. We were going to anchor but I guess it worth being able to walk ta town. We tried ta get a deal but that was the best we could do.
