Greetings from Toronto Ontario

Glad to be here as permanent Live Aboards! Sold the house, downsized and moved aboard all within three years! Not bad at all! ;-)

Welcome,
I used to live in Etobicoke (still can't call it Toronto). Moved on board last summer and have made our way across to Portugal.

So did they finally dig out that creek to seven feet? I got tired of doing their dredging for them and haven't been back in 10 years.

Actually, as a native Torontonian (the few, the proud), I'm willing to call Etobicoke "Toronto".

Port Credit, not so much.

Re: Greetings from Toronto Ontario

Well, even if I am further East, I consider to be in your gang, sailing on Lake Ontario, but not this year, we are on dry at Iroquois on the St-Lawrence Seaway. Next summer will be Kingston and I hope to visit the Toronto area one of these days by boat. We are living close to Montreal and we love Ontario! Welcome on board this forum!

Re: Greetings from Toronto Ontario

Alchemy, it seems they're trying to keep it dredged? The channel is about as deep as its going to get now - 8 feet. The power line that sits at the bottom makes it a tad difficult to go deeper. lol
Drops to five deep when the locks. Tight little area...but cute and reasonable on the pricing.
