Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...
I'm aware of that. On our part of the river the tides are getting up to 7.5', as opposed to the normal 6.5'. But in the past debris wouldn't wash off the shores until things got to about 9.5', which usually requires a good heavy storm. IIRC, record high in Philly is 10.6', set (or at least tied) during Sandy. Irene was 10.5', and washed so much debris downriver that my boat was completely blocked in the slip by sticks. So the current high tidal swing didn't bring as much debris in the past few years.
