They said that we would have to pay to stay at Brockport NY. So we almost bypassed it. Paying for a slip at almost all marinas is something we try and avoid, as it usually runs $1.35 to $2.00 per foot per night. Adventure is 34 feet long so it generally means $46 to $68 per night. That is one of the reasons we try to anchor out at night because they can’t charge you to anchor, as long as you do not interfere with anyone else. The point is when I asked Art the cost to stay in Brockport he said $15 with all amenities. I couldn’t believe it and said I’ll stay, then when I went in to pay he said he had made a mistake and it was actually $12. The next day we said we wanted to go to Wamart and asked if they had a cab or bus service available. They said no then offered to drive us at no charge using their personal vehicle. I was Wowed.
So Sue drove us to Walmart then came back an hour later and picked us up and brought us back to the boat. The people we have been meeting along our travels have been great and made this trip so enjoyable.
We are staying at least 2 if not 3 nights here while I work on the boat. With the mast down I will rerun all the wiring in the mast and change out all lights to LED. When using the Anchor there is one light that I have on at the top of the mast. It will use about 15% of my battery for just that light overnight. By changing it to LED we reduce the electricity by 900%. So it will save us on battery usage significantly.
The ducks are friendly to! As long as you feed them.
A little shorter today but things are settling more into routine.
