    So I did call and speak to the lock operator this morning to verify there was no scheduled maintenance and they anticipate the lock to be running on Saturday and as of now he confirmed that they do you plan on running on Saturday A call will be made again Saturday morning to confirm before we leave Charleston

    So after doing a little research it turns out the Tall Ship event will be taking place at the old naval ship yard this is were the boats will be docked for the event. This is on the cooper River so we will pass them on the way up and back on the cooper. For those who have been before this is the area on the cooper where all the tankers and several large coast guard and s few military ships were docked just before the naval nuclear submarine school is.

    Looks like the weather is going to be nice, shouldn't have any issues with the locks. Can't wait to get out on the water!

    I thought all was lost and I would not be able to make the trip because I wasn't getting my boat back from the dealer until tomorrow but I got the boat back today. It looks like I'm going to launch directly from Charleston with the group. I'll read all the previous threads and comments but if you guys could be on the lookout for me I'd appreciate it I'm not familiar with the area I'll be in a 19 foot white and blue Yamaha.

    919-348-6092 is my cell number.

    I cannot wait to see some of you again and meet some of you for the first time.

    Actually, the old stand up fans like me many moons ago, called the 1st generation of 2 seaters "The couch". So I guess U may be right that they have progressed in to a king size sleeper sofa! ;-) But at least on my couch U best be able to hold on to the handlebars when U pull the trigger and those 310 supercharged ponies cut loose and want to take U airborne! ;-)

    Looking forward to the recap on this great trip! Safe travels and enjoy the trip. This looks like more of an option for me than a Bimini trip at this point
