I'm down river from you in western Arkansas on the Arkansas River. I see river cruisers on the Arkansas down here occasionally (mostly sailboats). Cruising between Tulsa and Little Rock would be nice and is in my plans.
I used to have a Catalina
27 on lake Tenkiller in Oklahoma. I sailed there for a few years until a tornado wiped out Snake Creek Marina where I had the boat
. I took it out and need to buy a new mast
