Do you take the Hudson to Fort Edward and then the Champlain Canal? It looks very small on the map.

LMAO. I dont remember what spare time is anymore. Im pouring the foundation today and I have depositions tomarrow am for the National Marine B.S otherwise Id love to meet you. Id say go up to Troy and stay at the docks right at the foot of the Federal lock. Troys nightlife is much better the Rennssalear. I think the lock starts operation at 900am on weekdays

GL,

Be careful just north of the split of the Erie and the Champlain canal.As you pass under the bridge about a 1/4 mile before C1 lock the canal is very shallow this year.I was following a 26' Bayliner this past Saturday and he ran just a little wide to the outside of the channel and hit bottom.The middle of the channel was only 5' at it deepest point so take it slow.
