Leaving Waterford via the Erie canal you go through the highest amount of lift in the shortest distance any where in the world. The Waterford flight of docks raises the boat over 150 via 5 locks. The crew has to keep the boat next to the wall but not crashing into the wall. They reported that they will not need to go to the gym today.
We followed the Mohawk River through a few more locks past Schenectady, to Amsterdam where we tied up for the night.
Yes it is very turbulent as the lock fills pushing the boat all around.
Next to most of the locks was a dam.
We were glad this barge was not in the lock with us.
A train went over the lock just as we were going under the bridge.
Tied up at Amsterdam City dock for the night.
