Where's Eli - Day 8 & 9 - You win some, you lose some

On Sunday morning Captain Eli and Mate Graham passed through Lock 23, on the Sabre 48 Salon Express, which put us into the Western part of the Erie Canal System. From there they they swayed off to the Oswego Canal System which would ultimately put them into Lake Ontario a little bit quicker, or so they thought. Once they arrived at they found out that since they are a non-commerical vessel, they were not priority so it could be anywhere from 24 hours to 72 hours before they were able to pass due to the high boat traffic. Captain Eli made the decision to back track and head back through the remaining part of the Erie Canal so that they are at least making forward progress rather than playing the waiting game again. Lesson learned; stay in the Erie Canal System!
