The Nemo-deer figurehead had led us to midpoint in the KVK before the fuel soured in the engine, and
Kristy Ann Reinauer (shown here with Stephen last summer over by the AK Bridge) offered a tow to a quicker safer anchorage over
where futile calls for assistance led nowhere when the dispatcher for a certain unnamed membership-based rescue service wanted to know where between Lake Erie and Erie Canal one might find the location of Erie Basin (!?@!?)
and USCG patrol/headquarters sorted out their protocols and
graciously towed us to Red Hook. For a a photo of your truly doing his own fotos, check this link, with many thanks to Tom Turner.
About Kristy Ann, I’m wondering if she’s a twin of Juliet?
