A picture is worth a thousand words
A picture is worth a thousand words, and certainly more than a few foul ones...
During the public debate over the Estabrook Dam, one pro-dam supporter got in the face of a friend of mine, and repeatedly screamed "You can't float a boat in that part of the river! (downstream from the Estabrook Dam)" while turning red in the face. He also stated this 'fact' at the March public meeting, and if I am not mistaken, was the one person who had to cautioned when I got up to speak.
Well... here is a toast to that water that nobody can canoe or kayak in. Picture taken in Early June 2009, downstream from Capitol Drive in the Milwaukee River. Flow rates about typical, @ 300-400 cfs.
They sure look like boats to me. Recreational kayaks to be specific.
