Trent Severn depth

The boat has a 5.5' keel. Has anyone done the Trent-Severn in a similar boat? Does their depth vary with seasons. Stated depth is 6' but a waiver for any boat with more than 5' draft. Is this a real problem for me?

Re: Trent Severn depth

I have taken 5.5 ft through the canal, though some years back. There are some lumps and thin spots...

I cannot exactly see the point of a "waiver", so I did not sign one. The only person actually responsible when a vessel goes aground is the captain, any statements, official or otherwise, about available depth notwithstanding....

Good Luck

Re: Trent Severn depth

I understand that anything about five feet becomes quite problematic in spite of six feet being nominally available.
Back to Great Lakes sailing on our Catalina 36 MkII after many years ocean sailing on a Bristol 45.5, which was just too big for the yacht clubs on Lake Ontario.
