Mean Lower Low

Water is so low now we actually got stuck on the muddy bottom in the marina!! On our way out for a day sail on the river I wanted to make a stop at the pump-out / fuel dock but we got stuck about 20m before it. Tilting the boat with crew to one side and increasing engine power was enough to get us going again but c’mon! I’ve heard rumours that commercial ships are halving their loads in order to stay off the bottom in the dredged channels. I’ve also heard that the authorities are going to literally open the floodgates from Lake Ontario to increase water levels around Montreal.
