Our original plan was to take the boat back down the St. Lawrence and spend some time on the East Coast of Canada. We enjoyed the trip bringing Fracas home from Quebec City to Little Current and looked forward to riding the locks going down instead of tearing the boat apart coming up.
Then we began to consider doing the Great Loop
Last season our friends went down the Illinois, Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee, Tennessee Tombigbee waterway and Black Warrior to Mobile Alabama and the Gulf. We are watched their experience; Devocean and Bliss II. What we saw from their experiences, this is the way to go. To follow their passage click here. If you are going to do the Loop do it downhill.
This map shows the options you have doing the Great Loop. We are adding the option of spending some time in the Bahamas, BVI and cruising south along the chain. We may bring Fracas home and if we do we will finish the loop and come up the Easter US and the St. Lawrence.
As of November 23, 2014 we are at Mobile Alabama getting the boat re-masted and ready to take on the ocean.
