I have started to do some of my planning for a trip down the Rideau this summer. Wondering if there are any CW's that boat on the Ottawa river that could suggest a good launch site. I would like to start on the Ottawa so that I do not miss the first 8 lock lift.

None that I know of but these sail-logs of Jim's trips may help.

From GOOGLE EARTH you can see a marina and launch site in Quebec that is adjacent to the entrance to the canal in Ottawa.

Transiting the eight locks at Ottawa will take quite a bit of time.

Thanks Jim, after reading your trip tick from when you did the Rideau I have decided to forgo the Ottawa locks and now plan on starting at Dow lake marina and ending at Kingston Mills. Will be a camping trip mid to late June so hoping for lots of sunshine.
