DAY 53 - KINGFISHER MARINA TO BOBBY’S FISH CAMP (98.1 mi.)



Sunday, January 1, 2017 - We called the lock at 6:30 and they were ready for us.  Both boats left the dock at 7:00 am.  We arrived at Demopolis Lock and were taken down 34 feet which took 20 minutes.  For the next few hours from 7:30 - 10:00 am we were in heavy fog going only 10 kt.  Finally at 10:15 it started to rain and the fog lifted.  We began to cruise at 22 - 24 kt.  It was nice to see were we were going.  At 12:00 there was more drizzle.  We are running with the front window open for visibility and it is pretty cold on the bridge.  We arrived at Bobby’s Fish Camp at 12:45 pm.  and both boats filled their fuel tanks.  We all had a cat fish dinner at Bobby’s Fish Camp Restaurant.
