I've really enjoyed this thread.It was hot and muggy yesterday here at Paris Landing with heavy rain late in the day. Willaway was back in our Marina for the second time the other day.It over powers everything here.

David,
As you mentioned, the bollards at Chickamauga lock are probably the most irritating on the entire river...a fact I find unfortunate given how often we go through that particular lock! The rounded top of the bollard works fine if you are on a low freeboard boat or a smaller express but it is a pain for boats 40' and up. I usually end up wrapping the line twice around the bollard for that lock to keep it from slipping off when locking through.
Welcome to Chickamauga- how far up you going today? All the way to Watts Bar? There are some good anchorages right at the mouth of the hiawassee river where it intersects with the TN River and some others right upstream from Watts Bar lock as well if you aren't going all the way up to Blue Springs or Euchee Marina (which would make for a long day).

there is a nice anchorage immediately above Watts Bar lock on your starboard side once you lock through.

I didn't see this until I was anchored. But it's the second little cove on the port side. Very nice. And no bugs I'm laying outside on the bow.

I am pretty sure you can directly upload videos just as you would a photo. Try it and see?

Cove you are in on your port side of lock is good too. Great shots of your boat- she is not bad looking for a bayliner!! Honestly- she is a nice looking aft cabin- well propotioned and nice lines. This has been a very fun thread for everyone I think. I hope to maybe have one like it myself if we end up taking our 45 down to the Tampa Bay area next month!

From post #8 of this thread Set up your account | Help, Tips, etc

"You can embed a YouTube video (provided it's on topic) in a post. Just copy the url of the video from your browser address line and paste it into your post. The video will display when you make the post."

Here is a video I happen to be listening to in another tab right now for example...



I suppose I blew the on topic part though
