This bridge only had 13 feet of clearance so the bridge had to open for us and the freighter.
Pictured is the raft up. Note yellow "rope"
I won't bore you with pictures of each lock except the last one here, St Lambert. Note the steel lift bridge that traverses the lock, which is in the up position. We arrived at the lock at 3:30, the Quebec boaters arrived much earlier as they "hurry up to wait" and ignore the speed limit. At 6:30 the ship that we followed was still in the lock and the gates were not closed. One of the Quebecers called the eclusier to learn there was a mechanical problem with one of lift bridges. The eclusier expected that we would be ready to lock at 7:00PM. Sure enough we entered at the appointed time. Out by 7:45PM and in the marina at 8:15PM after bucking a 6 knot current in the St. Lawrence for 2 miles.
We were very glad to tie up to the dock and enjoy a cold beverage. Port d'Escale is located in Old (Vieux) Montreal so very handy for sightseeing. Island Hopper is along the wall with the bow facing out along the top of the picture. Link to Marina Website
