Rob is the proud new owner of an American Tug 34 with a beautiful dark blue hull.

Check out photos of these incredible marvels as Captain Chris joined Rob and together they journeyed UP the Tennessee River locking through Joe Wheeler State Park, home of the AGLCA Fall Rendezvous.

Although spring is not the usual time to be heading up river, this boat's new home was up stream from where she was purchased. Captain Chris came aboard in Pickwick Lake and this training delivery completed in three days with a final destination of Chattanooga TN. Lots of Locks! Building lots of confidence!

We boarded this 34 American Tug in Pickwick Lake headed up stream to Joe Wheeler State Park on the first day. Two locks completed for a total of 141 feet.
Strange to see a cruise liner on the Tennessee River.
Looks like the Grand Canyon...right here in Tennessee.
Waiting for the lock to open. BIG doors!
Cavernous entry.
Getting ready to lift 93 feet. Can you hear the clank of the steel doors as they shut?
A handy reminder for which side the navigation aids can be found. Red right returning is true in this case because we are returning from sea.
Finding the entrance is interesting. Can you see the lock doors? If you can you have x-ray vision.
