The lower Wisla
is from the connecting lock at Brda (Brahe) a commercial waterway. It is navigable without any problems except with floodwaters. One has to be aware though, that there is not a single wharf between Bromberg and
Danzig, not even at the fortified town of Graudenz (Grundziadz). If it has enough water, one has the possibility to navigate the small side river to the small town of Swietcie. Here, at least the swell could be omitted when anchoring.
