It has been several decades since my studies of isostatic rebound, but as I remember, what is happening is that the rebound further south is pretty much done in comparison to further north. The result is the land is slowly tilting with areas to the north getting higher which tends to drain Huron more. Not saying that dredging has not had an impact, but if it did have a huge impact then Erie would be much fuller than it is.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
