If you spend any length of time along the Erie Canal you will see the majestic blue and gold Canal Corporation tugs, tenders, scows, and derrick boats going about the business of keeping the historic Erie Canal in top shape. You will also see canal boats passing east and west throughout the summer months. These are reproductions that people can rent for a week or longer. We see more and more of these boats along the Erie Canal and we also see very happy boaters enjoying their experience as they slowly work their way along the canal, stopping at many of the wonderful canal communities to learn more about the towns and Canal.
We had a Tug DeWitt Clinton sighting on a recent blog about traveling a week along the Erie Canal in a Lockmaster Canal Boat by Mid-Lakes Navigation. Click here to read Sharon Roth’s blog about her experience and to see a photo of Tug DeWitt in the background.
