We arrived at Chilo Lock 34 Park early on September 17th -- a perfect September morning. Since the Jennie Wade does not have an engine, Chris Tucker was going to guide her to her new home using his tow boat.
Everyone on board, including her previous owners Wayne and Bev McClain, was impatient with anticipation. So Chris Tucker moved her from the dock and we were all impressed with her apparent seaworthiness and stability on the water. With the lock free, we were on our way.

As you can see, the five-hour cruise from Chilo to Cincinnati involved a lot of hard work.
