Marine History on the Erie Canal (photo)

Early this morning, the 83′ replica schooner Lois McClure from the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum in Vermont passed the 61′ Farallone, a Luders U.S. Army Quartermaster Boat docked at the Lyons dock on the Erie Canal. The Farallone is the last remaining Luders U/ S. Army Quartermaster Boat. The 1863 replica schooner Lois McClure and the 1918 Farallone are cruising the canal as part of the NYS Erie Canal Bicentennial Celebration.
