Hey guys, waiting on the river to open up to sea trail a boat. How's it looking down there by the marina? Any updates truly appreciated.

What is "sea trail"?

Sorry, meant Sea Trial, running a boat to ensure it is what they say it is in terms of seaworthyness and that the engine's run before I make the purchase.

I was curious about the "sea trail" too. crazy Still 20+ inches of ice on the Croix. Usually not ice-free till mid April, though some marinas may have some open water around them earlier.

About half of the marina is open. couldn't see the hoist area, but I think its open.

The north side of the bay is open (south of the pier).

The main channel is open (of course).

If you were going to go out now, you'd have to break through the ice for about 30yds. Not sure how thick it is. Then head up around the island. It is plenty deep for most boats, but you have to stick close to the pier. In the top picture you can see an underwater point that extends to the NE. It's all no-wake north of the bridge.

Absolutely awesome work Lightning! Way more than I could have asked for. Looks like I may be down in the next couple weeks to take her for a spin!

There is a boat launch on the Minnesota side just south of the 94 bridge called Beanies if the waiting gets to much. grin

We all know whats that about especially wanting to know how the new rig performs.

Tom, can't you take it out on Superior up there?

I'm guessing the boat is already at the marina. Otherwise there are plenty of other places with open water.

Yep, its the one in my avatar, sitting on stands. They will have to use the lift to drop her in for the trial, and a semi to ship it up to Superior, so going elsewhere is not an option.

Have you contacted the Marina to see when they would even be open to start lifting boats in? It's melting like crazy down here now so maybe it wouldn't be to long?

You might want to see the High Water post I just made. Looks like the river will be going all the way up to 683 feet by next Thursday or Friday and that would put the No Wake Restriction in place. I also expect it to blow right past 683 feet and we could be looking at flood levels after that. Normally the ice doesn't go out until around the 2nd week in April but this high water will definitely affect the Ice Out time. The main channel area from the Swing Bridge to the Hudson 94 Bridge will probably have a lot of broken up, drifting ice in the High Water current I would expect. The marina docks and the ramps are all going to be having problems with the high water too.
