    I believe so. It was not 100% clarified, so I said do away with them all just to be safe.

    I voted repeal the outer but leave the inner as is. Having a no wake zone for the inner makes sense, assuming where I'm talking about is the inner harbor.

    Yeah, inner harbor should be a no wake zone. Just out to the light house.

    Ok, so that map confirmed what I thought. Repeal the stupid outer harbor speed limit, leave the inner as it is and basically everything goes back to working just as it has for the last 50+ years.

    I'm back in Erie Basin this year. We'll see how this year goes, but with a move to our new house with a pool, it might be the last year for us.

    Done. Agreed with outer harbor for my top speed runs at 40mph, and the inner for the chill time.

    Did the survey. Doesn't really affect me since I'm on Ontario, but I understand the idiocy of the low speed limit in the outer, yet am completely fine with the 5kt inner harbor limit.

    I see how it is. Once your boat is over 30ft you simply have to use knots instead of MPH huh?

    Should have heard the shit I caught when I called that area with the fridge, sink and stove a kitchen. The horror.

    Well, he did say he's in Ontario, so maybe it's a Canadian thing... Silly metric system

    *on* Ontario


    But I'll be heading up the Trent-Severn this Summer, so I'll definitely be *in* Ontario for a little while. Not sure if I'm going to go the full length to the Georgian Bay though. It's a bit of a trek.

    I'm staying on Gloucester Pool for a week over the summer and stumbled on this today:



    You should probably do it

    The Big Chute Marine Railway is the ONLY one of its kind in North America still in use. Officially known as Lock 44 of the Trent-Severn Waterway, it works on an inclined plane to carry up to 100 foot boats up (or down) the 60 foot change in elevation.

    LOL. Yep. Doing the lift locks in Peterborough, and going to try to get to the end. Apparently that thing can handle more than my joint weighs, so yay for that.
