Riding the Big Chute Video

The second lock of the Trent/Severn Waterway is called the Big Chute.  It’s not really a lock, but a marine railway type of system where your boat is taken out of the water, transported up a big hill and over a road and deposited back in the water on the other side.  It was originally designed so commercial ships could have the bottom of the boat cleaned to remove invasive species from entering the Great Lakes waters, but it is primarily only recreational now and the lift has remained.  Enjoy the video!  Sharon is in the way of some of it as we go up the hill, but she moves in time for you to see us going back in the water.  A very interesting process!
