Loopers generally do the Erie Canal. NFW is that BSO even getting to the entrance of the St. Lawrence, let alone up it.That would probably be the 2nd most prudent and do-able thing for that BSO. Just two little hick-ups though: going upstream against the St.Lawrence river. Does anyone know how many knots this BSO is capable of making good? There are stretches of the St.Lawrence where the current he will be bucking will reach sustained 3 to 6 knots on the nose. That will be a whole lot of diesel and a whole lot of days before he gets up to Kingston and Lake Ontario.
The other hick-up: Dugg is a boating idiot pretending to possess knowledge.
The 1st most prudent thing is to motor back up the Mississippi , find a relatively safe and out of the way ox-bow and call it a day.
