We will back up on posting as soon as we can travel.
couple weeks for a clutch seems lengthy, better stock up on liquid refreshments or the bartab may exceed the repair bill

smooth sailing

How fast is the current - You can count on about 1 statute MPH on your nose. It will probably be more between Mobile and Demopolis. It can get quite strong if heavy rains. Maybe 2-2.5 MPH but I have seen worse. The upper Tenn Tom and the TN will vary a bit but usually mild. Heavy rains will make it worse of course. Call or search US Army Corp of Engineers to see flow rates. Calling the various dams will give you water levels and flows. Also calling marinas will often give good flow information.

HERE WE GO AGAIN !!!!!! Trans is being installed today, plan on leaving in the AM heading back to Dog River then North. Trans was rebuilt but showed no signs of oil leak. Seals all in good shape, disc packs showed signs of wear from slipping. Was told oil could have been boiling out of trans due to slipping.

Docked at Mobile Civic Center on the river. Mile marker "0" of the Tenn-Tom.
So we are really heading north in morning. River is alittle rough due to ship activity. must call ahead for electricity.
