Bye Bye Georgian Bay

We have spent the past two weekends here on Georgian Bay getting to know the boat and her systems.  It is BEAUTIFUL in this area!  I can’t believe I have never spent time here when we live so close.  But… close is not close enough.  The 2 hour drive is too much to get to the boat so we have decided to move down the Trent Severn and take a slip at Crates Marine in Lagoon City.

We will be 45 minutes from the house which is perfect.  On our way home from the boat yesterday we stopped at a Big Chute to check things out.  Seeing this will be a first for us Doug wanted to see how it works.  For anyone not familiar with the Big Chute here is the description from the Wikipedia:

Big Chute Marine Railway is a boat lift at lock 44 of the Trent-Severn Waterway in Ontario, Canada. It works on an inclined plane to carry boats in individual cradles over a change of height of about 60 feet (18 m). It is the only marine railway (or canal inclined plane) of its kind in North America still in use, and is overseen by federally operated Parks Canada.

So it looks like next weekend we will head south.
