Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


This picture is of two empty, or “light”, boats. On the berm side is one of the small passenger boats that carried vacationers wishing to enjoy the water and wilderness of the canal. It was fairly frequent to have two boats traveling together for companionship between families or possibly very large families that ran two boats during the Canal Towage Company years.
