Re: Low Water

Same issues in lake Ontario (downstream from the St clair river). Our bay (Mimico) is down about 18 inches and geting some of th bigger boats out for the season was a challenge. Despite good depth, some slips were too shallow for some of the larger boats.

during haul out a few weeks ago, I watched one boat motoring over to the crane and all of a sudden the boat stopped and the stern lifted up 8 inches or so. It was able to power through in reach of the crane so it all worked out.

Despite all the rain we have had, levels are still low. Georgian Bay is even worse. I drove by a few weeks ago and around Port Severn, could see docks ending a good 20 feet from the water!

have heard lots of stories about rocks being "discovered" in areas that were never an issue.

I am not really from Toronto
