We enter the Tennessee taking a small short cut and proceeded up river reading the cans and cones. As we came to the end of the island we found a red cone in the center of the river so we followed the "Red right when returning rule" and seeing a green can ahead we somehow managed to run aground. 
Confusing reined.
We turned to port and went around the green cans. Priding ourselves that the only thing that was damage was our ego's. Lee reading the first daymark discovered we were on the OHIO river, so we alter course again back to the Tennessee we hoped.

The long float up the lock. 57 feet which took about 25 minutes. The turbulence was so great it took Lee and I all the strength we could muster to hold the Professor and Mary Ann against the wall.
