|Narrow, not very deep and full of obstructions this is The Great Dismal Swamp Canal. They may close it permanently this November. I certainly hope that our Stellar Government Officials will search the White House Couches and come up with the mere $400k it will take to keep her open. They must have that much change just sitting around gathering dust.... |
The obstructions come as downed trees that are submerged, logs that have broken loose and are partly or totally submerged. I only saw a few things and only 'rode over' one log that I did not see. It kicked up her starboard rudder, but caused no damage. It was a little disconcerting and was at the beginning so I was a little concerned. However, there were no more incidents.
A large sailboat (Banana Wind) with a 5' keel went thru and only bumped a couple of times. They may have just pushed aside large partly submerged logs, but because Doublewide has no keel, she will ride over things such as that.
