Perfect for first time river cruisers and Loopers! Ask Captain Chris as we cruise aboard a 43 foot twin diesel Carver into Clifton, TN then up the Tennessee River through the locks into Joe Wheeler Lock and State Park Marina, a favorite stop for Southbound Loopers. Watch as we radio the locks for entering permission, pull up and secure the boat to the bollard and then exit the lock. Bonus footage: Cruising includes checking the engine room, overtaking towboats with multiple barges and docking tips. Ride along with us to see the real world of Looping. Consider Part 2 & Part 3 to complete the voyage.
