Hello from the Mississippi River

I have only cruised on the UMR for 2 years, spent 10 years on a Kansas lake before that. I have a couple of projects to complete in the next 2 years and then plan on heading south in the fall to where the only ice will be in my drinks. I've been staying on the boat April thru November & I should mention I have a powerboat it is a 3870 Bayliner with t 175 hp Hino diesels, not many sailboats in this area I suppose because of the 4-5 mph current, I do have a sweet sixteen I still sail on Perry Lake at home. I hope to learn from the other members & contribute when I can add anything worthwhile.

Re: Hello from the Mississippi River

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here. I was out on the Miss. River near Moline just last year. Very different from Pacific sailing.
kind regards,

Re: Hello from the Mississippi River

Thanks everyone for the welcome, one good thing about the river there is a wide choice of places to go and if you stay in the channel you can't get lost.
