A Shout Out About Boat Wakes

Pool 26 of the Mississippi River

Dardenne Slough

 

Hi Bill.
Just wondering if you could give a shout out to all the Big Boaters out there about their wakes.

We are up on the Dardenne Slough across from Dardenne Island. This year has been the worst for wakes in my five years here at this property.

15 Docks have been damaged from all these 40 plus ft boats plowing water. And most of these docks have been here for years and gone thru flood after flood. They make thru the winter ice, but not these monster boat wakes.

So far no one has been hurt yet.

What ever you can do will be appreciated....

Tony

 

Mississippi River At Hannibal, Missouri

'Boat Season' Is Arriving In Hannibal........

 

While most people around Hannibal believe that boat season comes around when the ice melts enough for them to launch their boats into the Mississippi River, Gail Bryant, director of the Hannibal Convention and Visitors Bureau, believes that boat season refers to the arrival of large riverboats packed with passengers ready to tour America's Hometown.

 

Even though the Spirit of Peoria docked along the Hannibal riverfront earlier this month, Bryant said that the return of the big riverboats with overnight accommodations for the passengers officially starts on Tuesday, July 25.  The American Queen will be docking at noon.

 

Bryant says that they enjoy having riverboats stop in Hannibal, since it gives visitors an opportunity to see something extra.  At this time, there are 25 dockings scheduled for Hannibal's 'Boat Season'.  Bryant adds that the schedule is not concrete, as last year, there were 17 dockings, but 10 cancellations........

The Forecasted Crest For The Mississippi River Is Lowered........

 

While the Mississippi River is still rapidly rising around the Quad Cities, officials have lowered the predicted crest by a foot from Saturday's forecast.

 

The National Weather Services' North Central River Forecast Center in Chanhassen, Minnesota released new data on Sunday predicting that the Mississippi River at Lock and Dam No.15, Rock Island will be cresting at 16.4 feet around 7 am Tuesday.

 

On Sunday, meteorologist Bill Nichols with the National Weather Service, Davenport, said that the Quad Cities region got a lot of rainfall in a short period of time, and it took a few days to sort through the data.  He adds that the data trend is positive and if anything, the forecast could be slightly lower........

Mississippi River At Cape Girardeau, Missouri

Historic River Levels Added To Cape's Flood Wall........

 

Crews recently added new river levels to the Cape Girardeau floodwall along the Mississippi River.  The highest level now is that of the record breaking New Year Flood of 2016.  Also added is the most recent flood of 2017, which ranks as the fifth highest.

 

A look at all of the levels recorded on the floodwall reveals that four out of the seven highest have happened within the last six years.

 

Every one of the high level marks placed on the Cape Girardeau floodwall represents a change in lifestyle and a struggle for many who were affected by the Mississippi River floodwaters........

Historic U.S. Warships

The USS Constitution Returned To The Water........

 

On Sunday night, the world's oldest commissioned warship still afloat, the USS Constitution, was slated to be refloated and returned to her berth after spending more than two years in a Boston dry dock for restoration work.

 

The wooden ship was originally launched in 1797 and earned her famous nickname, "Old Ironsides" earning victories during the War of 1812.

 

Nearly every 20 years, the USS Constitution enters dry dock for below-the-waterline repairs.  The latest round of restoration work involves the replacement of 100 hull planks and the installation of 2,200 new copper sheets........
