one item re; the c&d which wasn't mentioned is the railroad draw bridge at summit north. it does close ocassionally. usually in the middle of the night. to the best of my recollection, its usually a train that takes coal to a power plant on the pen. moniter channel 9 or 13 and you will be advised if its going to be lowered,what time and for how long. there is plenty of room for a passing ship. current can be very high, up to almost 6knots at max flood or ebb in either direction. so pick your time of transit carefully. i think that the times are posted on the army corps of engineers web site in Philadelphia, they are responsible for traffic control through the canal.
