We kept a boat at Aqua Yacht Harbor for a while. Looped there, then explored the TN river a bit and then the Cumberland.

Hi Tom,

Welcome to the Trawler Forum where you will find a plethora of information from the brain trust here. There are some very knowledgeable contributors who share timely information. Don't be afraid to ask a question because we ALL were newbies at one time.

We are on (actually near) the Tennessee River just a few slips down from Miss Rita at Aqua Yacht Harbor. Drop by anytime!

Also.. what was your aviation interest? Professional or fun? We have a Beech Baron (BE58) that we use to visit grandkids and friends and the occasional $100 hamburger. Well... it "used" to be $100, but that changed with the recent administration.

Come see us,

Rusty and Kris Bliss

We didn't even get to Kentucky Lake that trip, so someone could have easily said "You ain't seen nothin' yet" to us. I'm still excited by the monstrous and beautiful and so relatively underdeveloped Kentucky Lake and then it having a nice opening into a whole other river. It's like Pickwick opening to the TN Tom and then the Gulf of Mexico. Omg, I'm getting excited just typing and in the office where getting too excited isn't a good idea.
We live on Lake Chickamauga, and your description of the trip up or down Nickajack is right on point. If you get that far, head north through Watts Barr, on to Ft Loudon, and head down to the foot of the Smokies on the Tellico. You will really enjoy it. Feel free to PM when you get close.

Wifey B: Made it through Watts Bar, to Ft. Loudon, to Tellico in 2017 and loved it. We were even briefly tempted to look at homes on Chickamauga. Actually we did look as we passed by but didn't go into any.
