The Travels of Tug 44

City of Mechanicville - Champlain Canal

Mechanicville is a very nice port with a new town wall including electric, water, pumpout ... all free. The town is quite nice and has all the amenities. Friendly folks and a nice place. Safe too, the pier is right behind the police station.

The view from a slightly different angle shows the large church that overlooks the harbor.

This stream zig-zags right through town including under some buildings, and enters the Hudson River at the end of the pier. Looks like a place where trout might be found in the crystal clean water here.
