    We rode through part of the Trent-Severn waterway on Friday. Sparrow Lake to the edge of Georgian Bay. Had lunch at the Dam Grill.

    These photos are all from the same lock, a 47 foot vertical height change.









    The marine railway is a fun experience along the way to lunch.

    Keith, that is really interesting. Thanks for the pics.

    One question though, what is holding that boat in the last pic upright?

    Those are great Keith. Wish we had some interesting waterways around here but Iím limited to about 5-7 kms up the Ausable River in this area.

    The Big Chute Marine railway Ďcarí uses hydraulically raised slings to support boats in place.

    In my photo the yellow sling strap and hydraulically extended support post is visible right beside the hull rear. Also visible closer to the camera are more straps retracted into the deck, with the support posts waiting below. The entire contraption is quite large, with the wood deck riding about 30 feet above the ground as we traverse across the dry land.

    Thanks for posting.

    I actually own one of those, but have many reasons why I haven't used it in the past 5 years. My SL never comes off the beach at the cottage – even in winter! ...except when we're using it of course ...when it's working!

    Buy another ski then, just for trailering to other places.

    I might even meet you for a ride somewhere.

    Today was Lake Muskoka.
