Tidal current helped us head north up the Hudson River

Shelly took the helm for the final hour of the day; here she is preparing to clear the new Tappan Zee Bridge. This was still under construction last time we passed beneath her.

You can see she has on a headset with microphone. Ray has a pair on also. These are commonly called “marriage savers” by others doing The Loop. It helps the crew communicate while underway and while docking.
