Good afternoon. With the possibility that the Kirkfield locks will be closed, we have no choice but to go north. Could you recommend a book etc. that would list desirable anchorage along Georgian bay small craft route. Thanks Bob Chamberlain
Your email was forwarded to me because I can offer an answer and understand your challenges. It will be an adventure for you to head North to avoid any possible challenges at Kirkfield. I am happy to offer my thoughts on locations for homeport as I live near Lock 45 and am quite familiar with the Georgian Bay side as well.
I suggest that you purchase the Georgian Bay PORTS Guide and if you felt you need it (depending on experience) you may wish to purchase the Trent-Severn Waterway PORTS as well. We also publish PORTS and you are likely familiar with it. Georgian Bay edition is a must in my opinion and Trent-Severn is highly recommended if you have not already done that waterway frequently. www.portsbooks.com
Enjoy you summer and planning in advance!
