Calamity was launched in Prescott a week before departure to the east coast. When the boat splashed down, a leak was discovered around the head seacocks valve. Calamity retraced her steps up to the parking lot – and a frantic repair was made in order to relaunch and start a Dads (Gray Collette, Mark Newman and me- David Baird) and the Daughters (Chloe, Emma and Lucy) plus Tom! We left Prescott and immediate entered the eastbound locks of the St. Lawrence Seaway towards Montreal. Five days later, we arrived in the beautiful old port of Quebec City.
