Re: New York Ferry

I was on a Toronto island (slow, but larger) ferry that hit a dock. It sounded like the driver was trying to get the transmission into reverse and it just would not go. I seem to remember three distinct attempts before we hit the dock at perhaps 3 knots. No significant injuries but there could have been since people were standing on stairs waiting to get off. Add an equipment failure to the vagaries of the East River.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
