Recreational Boating Literature Review and Physical Field Measurements of Water Levels at Marina Boat Slips

Glenn Warren;Allan Douglas, Bill Boik
A literature review was performed concerning recreational boating, water levels, adaptation, and climate change as related to the Great Lakes. Information and metadata obtained were compiled into a database, and the design of subsequent field work was aided by the knowledge gained. Field work included physical boat slip depth measurements completed at marinas in 17 survey areas spread along lakes Erie, Huron and Superior. Of 221 marinas identified in these areas, 125 were surveyed (88 Canadian, 37 U.S.) for a total of 13,804 slips measured (9,457 Canadian, 4,347 U.S.). This data was analyzed and used to determine the relationship between changing water levels and the number of usable marina slips, which was used as a performance indicator in evaluating various water management scenarios.
