My boat

ā€œ… 15 Miles on the Erie Canalā€

Aug. 18, 2013 ā€“ I’m off on a 6 hr. drive from Camden, Maine to Albany NY, towing my boat.

The boat: a Swedish snipa (pronounced sneepa ) or archipelago boat. It was built in 1960 and restored by me a couple years ago.

The quest: To explore the Erie Canal. I’ve driven along the NY Thruway (which parallels the canal off and on) and imagined cruising the Canal.
