The dome tent idea is great, I never saw that before.

Thx for the reminder and will do.

Interesting too, in going through my dads belongings my brother found a knife made by Orie Vail in Tobermory.
My dad and I were in his shop/store when we were there back in the 70s.
Met he and Cpt Smith who ran the local tour boat.
My dads boating notes reference a book about the area that discusses their history there.
I found/bought it.

I would like to come up there this yr if I can get my act together.

Agreed in Facebook.
its a sewer.

Do the Cumberland and Tennessee Rivers have wing dams?

I know the Mississippi River does.... can make for some OH $hit moments if you aren't paying close attention due to many being just a couple feet below the surface.

No wing dams but you are correct, they can be quite the hazard.
There are about 5 or 6 dams that will need to be navigated both going down the Tennessee and back up the Cumberland. They are no real probles except leasure traffic has the lowest priority but this is not a heavily commercial route so all should be well. Should take less than 1 hr per lock, the trick is to call the lockmaster ahead and notify of the ETA.
Anybody with specific experience on these routes wish to share please feel free.

Never been to Your beautiful boating area, but with its ice age sculpted granite rocks the scenery is very familiar for us that have lived in the archipelagos surrounding the Baltic Sea in Scandinavia.

Love the tent on Your Superboat! Thanks for sharing.

Im the same, stay out all weekend pretty much every time I go out, never want to come home! Nothing better than sleeping out under the stars on the hatch, unless it's raining. But in that case I got one of those 8x8 tents that sets up in 2 minutes, just make sure you lash it down good to cleats and railings before you climb in there and zip it shut.
