Margot and crew specialize in commercial cargoes to places no longer accustomed to seeing such arrive by Canal. The cargo here is
electrical generators for PSEG a pair of very heavy transformers …. for RG&E Macedon.
Here’s the lowest air draft on the Canal, about 15 feet under Bridge E-93. I’m guessing that an egg positioned at the high point on Margot would have been crushed here. You’ve seen this bridge before on this blog here . . . last photo.
Notice how low the barge is. It’s flooded with water to reduce the air draft of the top of the cargo.
All these photos were taken between Montezuma and Macedon.
Here the tow is exiting Lock 27.
All the above photos were taken by Bob Stopper, frequent upstate contributor to this blog. The next two come thanks to Chris and Eileen Williams, whose work also has been featured here. Here the tow waits to be offloaded just west of Lock 30.
A final photo–mine–I took in March 2015; I include it here to show what travels between the water’s surface and the canal bed.
Bravo to NYS Marine Highway, and thanks to Bob, Chris, and Eileen for these photos.
Socrates left the harbor under a golden sunset pulling an empty

Stolt Perseverence, a parcel tanker built in Croatia in 2001, delivers assorted chemicals, escorted by James Turecamo and Marie J Turecamo (?).

Jill Jacob . . . moves global industrial life blood.
There’s so much that does NOT meet the eye and is NOT easily discovered about in/outflow of commodities in the boro. Of course, petroleum products and containers dominate, along with an occasional elixir of orange. Some months back I posted my fantasy about sailing goods into the boro from the agricultural north. Bowsprite reflects on overlapping ideas here.
