Cruise Notes: Took an evening cruise out with Dave, Tracy & Harley Ann. Locked out on a falling spring tide so were slightly restricted on our cruise time, wishing to return before full low tide. Ran upriver to Sun Pier to show our guests the historical dockyard from water side before turning and running out to Folly Point. Harley Ann took command of the helm for a time and did an excellent job of navigating the boat down Chatham Reach. Turned at Folly Point and headed back to Chatham on a beautiful evening. Entered the lock with 0.6 mtr to spare.
