Sailing Canal Boat Lois McClure

The Lake Champlain Maritime Museum, located in Vergennes, Vermont, has a fleet of boats that operate on Lake Champlain as well as other waterways. This year, in honor of the 200th anniversary of the beginning of construction on the old Erie Canal, two of its boats, the schooner Lois McClure and the tugboat C. L. Churchill, are traversing the present day canal.

This weekend, the boats are tied up in Waterford, NY, the Eastern terminus of the Erie portion of the canal. You can read more about the museum, these boats and this years trip on the canal at http://www.lcmm.org/index.htm.
