    The Lil' Diamond II 4 more images

    by Tom_Fields Written Sep 29, 2009

    Kim and Jerry Gertz brought the Lil' Diamond II here from Florida, where it now plies the waters of the Erie Canal. These narrated cruises teach a lot of history, taking visitors through locks and past the support boats and structures that keep this old canal functioning. It's used mostly by pleasure craft today. But once it was the gateway to the interior of the US. These people are old hands on the water, who know not just the Erie Canal but nearly every waterway in the eastern US. Their stories are almost inexhaustible, covering the history, engineering, wildlife, and the other people of this canal.
