Our river systems here in Australia were used as a primary source of transportation many years ago, one of the frequent problems with this however was the constant threat of drought, the lower the water levels receded the more sandbanks were raised,sometimes paddle steamers would be stuck for months until the water levels rose enough for them to contunue on………unless of course a lucky skipper found a farmer with a couple of working horses to free them from their predicament
