Re: Nova Scotia currents
We have gone up the east coast of NS from Chester to Bras d'Or Lakes and never noticed any significant currents to worry about except at the northern end of Bras d'Or where the current is very significant indeed, but current info is readily available at Baddeck.
Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Now in Bermuda and heading to Long Island Sound in the first week in May. Then on to the Hudson and the Erie Canal.
