A variety of boats on the canal served their owners for recreational or administrative purposes. The canal company often employed a paymaster to whom they made available a boat for his monthly trips up and down the canal to pay the company’s employees. Boats such as that were powered by steam—or in later years gas or diesel engines—and were sometimes able to operate in the river as well as the canal.
