Re: Finger Lakes,NY to Key West,Fl.

Made it to Sylvan beach,NY fron Baldwinsville,NY today. about 60 milis motoring w/ the mast layed down on the deck , due to traveling the Erie Canal.
last night was cold outside , but we were warm as we plugged in at the Baldwinsville,NY lock and ran the electric heat. Great place , only $5 for a 30amp for the night and free water and dockage !! Even had showers for $0.25 ! that's 25 CENTS !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tonight will be in the 40's and there is no elec or water in Sylvan beach so I hooked up the wood stove in case it gets to cool tonight Everything else we have onboard (power water etc.)
Saw another sailboat headedsouth , passed us at the lock while we were having breakfast, they said they were going to Fla. also (from Ithica,NY) and there is another sailboat tied up here w/ NY on the stern , haven't spoken w/ them yet.
Great trip so far , can't wait to get the mast up on the hudson and get to the Chessey.
