I tested her years ago, concerning the major compatibility issues that I could foresee becoming a future problem. She past the early test, and did it again in the storm. For a city girl, she is pretty tough.
We were out last night for a couple of hours in a boat parade, not to many photos, but I will throw some up tonight of the Frankfurt Museum Row Festival, taken from the river, that is if we can get through the locks today.
The Sport Boat locks we have to pass through are broken again (as always), meaning we have to go though with the commercial barges and hotels ships. I hate this, we are so small when they power up to leave the locks the thrust from their motors always knocks us in the little inflatable up against the back wall, like a tiny leaf on the water.
We got through last night with a bunch of other sport boats, so it wasn't that big of a deal. But coming home we were stuck behind a 6 story tall (that is at least how tall it seemed) hotel ship, and had several hundred people on the ships deck watching.
