Our second-to-last day on the water, we had a shift change for Solaris captains! Captain Jack Weeks, HRMM board member and one of the original promoters of constructing Solaris at the Hudson River Maritime Museum, took the helm from John Phelan.
We also got a chance to show off some amazing drone footage of New Baltimore, with some historical narration.
Poor Captain John didn't get much of a day off today! After seeing Solaris at Germantown, she lost her dingy, "Old Crab," who went on a bit of an adventure! Captain John tracked her down, with a little help.
We ended the day in Saugerties, and even got to talk to the Saugerties Lighthouse keepers, Patrick and Anna Landewe. Stay tuned for more interview footage from them!
Tomorrow is our last day on the water. If you've enjoyed this voyage, please consider making a donation to support this and future voyages.
