Exploring ideas for my annual "big boating trip" for 2019. I did the Rideau as part of a 17 day loop cruise this year and really liked it, and the Trent-Severn looks like a similarly great trip. The only downside is that I will not be able to do a loop, it will have to be Lake Ontario to Lake Huron and back the same way. Anyway, I would love to hear any recommendations for must-see places on the Trent-Severn. For reference, on the Rideau, we really enjoyed Westport, Perth, Merrickville and Ottawa. We expect it will take 7 days of traveling each way, excluding extended stops; this is based on the 35ish MPH cruising speed of my boat, the distances between locks, and what looks like not too much no wake zone on this route.

Dave, could you dunk the boat and then move the trailer to the other end of the waterway to avoid the round trip? Possibly take a train or bus back to your starting point?

We are considering doing that, but if it's anythinf like the Rideau, we really won't mind a return trip, I lust love the idea of a loop...

You can certainly do a loop that includes the Trent-Severn, but perhaps that is a wee bit longer then you want!
