Re: Cape Cod Canal vs sailing around

Interesting read;
Cape Cod Canal - Navigation, Passage, Transit, & Distance Information
"all vessels, including pleasure vessels, must be able to transit the land cut portion of the canal, between the Cape Cod Canal Control Station in Buzzards Bay and the East Mooring Basin in Sandwich (approximately 5.9 NM) within 2 hours and 30 minutes against a 6 knot foul current. Those vessels unable to comply with this restriction must avail themselves of a helper tug, at the vessels owner’s expense, or await a favorable current.

"In the event vessels within the confines of the canal fail to perform and are unable to make sufficient headway against the currents, the marine traffic controller may activate a helper tug to assist." I will let you take a guess on who pays for that!"
