probably in about a week or less depening on weather and how quick I get the mast stepped at Castleton boat club. Last time north we hit the open house party at castleton, three days later we got underway again !!
this saiing life can get tough some times.

Your draft should be fine for anchoring behind Bowline Point. Our T27 draws 3-1/2' and the only reason I ran aground is because I steered us right onto the shoal near the entrance. Now I have local knowledge!
I've been told that the depth in there is 10 - 20'.

I spent Tuesday night on my boat tied up to our club dock. Forecast low was for 48F or so but the river was still almost 70F so it felt pretty comfortable and not bone chilling cold.

Stay warm but hurry on down. It is getting cold out there.
