Hey guys. Is there still allot of debris floating around out on Simcoe and Cooks? I was told that after the wind storm last weekend there was quite a bit pushed back out. I only have my inflatable so I'm still a little leary on heading out. Don't feel like hitting something with a big spike sticking out of it. It would make for a real bad day lol. Cheers

I would be extra careful! I was in penetang and even though I was only going less than 10 kmh I hit a piece of dock that was partially submerged. It had a screw in it and I heard it scrape! I think it will still be a little while for most of the debris to be picked up or washed ashore. Ps. Still floating...

There is a ton of stuff floating in Cooks. The storm brought up lots of dead heads.
So much debris on the shoreline that will keep getting pulled back in from the waves.

I have 15 foot inflatable boat and 10 hp engine. Saturday of last week I started at bridge and canal st and went up river to mouth of simcoe. Saw submerged stumps along the way and was careful. Nothing bad happened so you may be fine as long as you keep eye out.

Thanks for the replies guys. Will be heading out tomorrow. I'll just take it slow and keep a close eye on what's around floating or slightly submerged. Cheers
