Canals: (Partially) Up and Running, er Flowing

So, an announcement today from the canal corporation I'm sure had a lot of local boaters happy: part of the Erie Canal near Waterford is opening for business on Saturday at 7am. If you want to get a head start on the summer boating, I recommend getting to bed immediately.
Also in the area, the Champlain Canal remains closed due to high water. Area canal officials estimate it could be a couple weeks before everything is opened.
One of these years, I want to rent a canal boat and just cruise along the historic waterways. That...and sail around the world. All I need is a boat and to learn how to sail.
