Weir U vozíčkárny
 

 Weir on the Vltava u vozíčkárny, map
– 284,05 r. km

Description :
seventh of the ten described weirs.
The actual weir is divided in two parts: on the left there is the wide sluice where most of the water flows, and on the right is the slanting part of the weir, with a flow of about 10 cm of water.

How to get over the weir :
It is possible to carry the boat over or tow it down the right-hand side. Choose a place where sewage isn't being dumped into the river.
A very badly built weir for canoers. With a light flow combined with a heavier crew, there is a danger of destroying your boat. After coming into the weir, the back of your boat drops and hits the bottom. Behind the sluice there is a nasty cylindrical backflow which slows the boat, or even stops and swamps it. If you still wish to go over this weir, I recommend :

It isn't possible to pass through the right part at normal water level. At higher water level it is possible to go through without any problems. Before going down, check the state of the bed under the weir for branches and rocks.
