Smile Where the he** is little River?

I use "he**" in the Title so as not to offend anyone who objects to the use of the work "heck".

Hi, all! My wife and I (Doug & Mary Jane) have lived aboard our 1984 46' Uniflite for the past 6 years. Although not technically a trawler, I never push the 6-71 Detroits much beyond 1800 RPM (10 knots on still water). Easy on the engines - easy on the speed-time-distance calculations. In 2015, we brought PAX down to Little River, SC from Port Clinton, OH via Lake Erie, Welland Canal, Lake Ontario to Oswego Canal to Erie Canal (aka: NY Barge Canal) to Hudson River to New York to Cape May, NJ (outside), hence N. on Delaware Bay to C&D Canal to Chesapeake Bay to Norfolk, VA to Little River, SC via AICW. Great trip.

PAX was completely overhauled (engines) and renovated stem to stern by the PO in 2011. He was a partnership owner of a Morningstar marina and used PAX to keep his employees working during the winter months in Ohio. She was also his private yacht.

I'm a Life Member and Sr. Navigator in U.S. Power Squadron. My wife will become a Life Member next year. She has the grade of Advance Pilot. We belong to North Strand Sail & Power Squadron.

Looking forward to participating in this forum and learning from y'alls experiences. Boating is a continuous learning experience.

Runs it's length on top of Lookout Mountain SW of Chattanooga - thru Little River Canyon Nat'l preserve (largest canyon East of Ms) then drops 50 ft into Weiss Lake at Yellow Creek falls. Great crappy fishing lake on the Coosa River down stream from Rome,Ga. No trawlers - but my Carolina Skiff 16' is just right.
Work is "heck"!
But I'm retired now. - Welcome!

Welcome! We have an "Old River" in California's Delta. However, it is little.

First thing first. Can you explain the proper usage of "y'alls" ?
Being Canadian, I didn't realize there could be a "proper" usage of what I always thought was a local slang term.
Having snowbird winters in the US since my retirement, it is time I learned.

Wifey B: Don't know, but I know the creek at the end of it and you don't want to be up there without a paddle.

It is one of those mystical southern words. "Ya'll come back", "Ya'll come sit on the porch for a while", "ya'll gotta gotta stay for dinner etc"

Near as a definite definition, it means, 'those currently here".

Sort of like the yankee, "yous guys"
Hope that helps.

It seems to mirror the Australian "youse",the plural form of "you", in some parts of the community.

I do like the Canadian "eh?" with the upswing of the voice.
Near as I can figure out, it is a Canadian period.
Yes, I did work in northern Canada.
