Over 4MPH on one engine @ 1600 RPM burning only 1.5g/hour.    1900 RPM yields 7 MPH and 3.6 MPG but with more wake than allowed in Manatee and No Wake zones.

Typical lock 'wall' for overnight docking.  All have bathrooms, few have 'hydro' at $9.80 extra, few have water at wall, none have showers.  We had seasonal 'locking' unlimited pass but not seasonal 'mooring' (docking) pass for Parks Canada.  Also covers docking at their National Parks, which are beautiful.

Example of the painted "Blue Line" which tells the lock workers you wish to lock through. There were no VHF radios 186 years ago, so lock workers don't have any. However, you can always call a lock on their cell phone, just like 186 years ago. Don't tie up on the Blue Line even for a 5 minute bathroom break.

Imagine the work involved with hacking through solid granite and the engineering involved 186 years ago to accurately determine the depth a canal needed to be over hundreds of miles to maintain a 4 ft depth!
