Importing into or out of Canada? Interestingly enough, I put in at Riverside park. loaded all of my long guns and pistols onto the boat. Knowing that bringing guns in to our good neighbors Canada would be completely against numerous laws, I was hugging the US side of the river. My intention was to hide / cache my weapons for a future date on a small no named island on the US side of the river (42.239241,-83.139746). Just north of Grassy Island in the Wyandotte National Refuge. I don't mind telling you all now because well, I never got to hide them. As I passed Zug Island I wasn't paying very close attention and got caught in the wake of the Detroit Windsor Truck Ferry Barge. That unsettled my small boat. but with the deck being designed to shed water also seem designed to shed guns. they slipped overboard and plunged into the murky depths of the fast flowing river. I was able to save a couple of boxes of 22LR and an ammo belt of mixed 12 gauge but that was about it. I really didn't want to attract attention to myself by trying to drown in the middle of the river so i moved my boat down to Belanger park to assess the situation. It is was a total loss. The river current is extremely fast. I think the flow rate is some 182,000 cubic feet per second and based on my measurements of the cross sectional area that means the water is moving at 2.5 feet per second. There was just no way I would be able to recover them without some diving equipment and a safety crew. And that would surely negate my interesting secretly caching my weapons for a future emergency. As I tell my kids, a story isn't a lie as long as your audience can tell you are making up a story So I just cut my losses. I am now in the market for some guns to replace those sunk in the muck and toxic ooze of the Detroit River. That's my story and i'm sticking to it. I'm surprised we don't hear more about similar tragic accidents. I didn't think that they were all that uncommon.
