|Oops! A boat (which will remain nameless) missed a marker and ran aground doing 15 knots in the lower Ottawa River. Sno' Dog became Tow Dog and successfully pulled them off - with some additional help from Miss My Money.|

|Smooth cruising at 16-knots on Lake Champlain. Like flying low, only smoother and quieter! The small wake is an indication of how efficient this boat is, I suspect our fuel burn at this speed is under 5 gal/hr for both engines.|
| We plan to continue the trip to Portsmouth, NH
next week. Stay tuned...
