The Travels of Tug 44

Erie Canal Lock E-8 at Scotia

Lock E-8 is seen with the retractable dam next to it, on this westward passage in 2014.

The doors of Lock E8 start to open as Tug 44 idles on her westbound approach.

The Flood of 2006 damaged the north side doors on this lock and on our trip of September 2006 we had to squeeze through a 22 foot wide opening when the door would not open. See full-sized photo
