The last two ships of the day lined up to go down. On the far side, the red-hulled Unterwalden, scheduled to lock down at 16:00; on the near side, the black-hulled Sea Phoenix, scheduled to go down at 16:10 -- just 13 minutes away! After that was a long line of southbound ships coming up, so we had to make the lock with Sea Phoenix or overnight on the lake.
