Woodsy's Gonna Be Wrong...

During the spring runoff, with the dam wide open the current in the Weirs channel under the bridge where it necks down (narrowest point) is easily 5-6 knots! The current is moving at such a speed as to cause white caps.

I think the normal current in the channel is 1-1.5 knots depending on the dam outflow.

Of course you have to change your speed to overcome the current... If you are in a 2 knot current you need a minimum of 3 knots to maintain forward motion...

ITD wrote:6 knots is 6.9 mph..... no way.   My boat idles at about 4 or 5 mph and with the dam wide open I have never had any problem making 3+ mph against the current in that channel.   AND you don't have to change your speed, you just go slower relative to the land. You and will have to meet on our jet skis next spring, when the dam is wide open and do some tests.   I'll bring a hand held gps and buy you a beer at the naswa after so we can tabulate data. Very Happy

Well, there IS a way ITD could be wrong, I'd better advise him by PM!

And you call yourself a human being Rolling Eyes  

Why don't you engage him where he posts and not here?

I did.

After 14 years of (my) posting at FATP, you can't tell I'm limited to .89 posts per day this season?

scratch

It may take a week to show up—or may never appear...

Maybe you can explain why I'm even restricted to posting zero photographs at FATP's photo gallery?



And restricted from "edit" (to remove those "excess" photos)?

Because you post pictures that have nothing to do with Winni except for some cool historical pics now and then.

Perhaps I'm "ahead of the curve", and "The Favorites" don't like it?
