Ancient Ships

I was looking at Google Earth, starting thinking about next years sailing season. I was thinking into passing the Corinth channel, maybe on the way back, to leave the boat in Preveza when I got curious about the channel. I new the Corinth wealth in old times was connected with trading and the strategic point on a narrow stretch of land between the Ionic and Aegean sea and I had the idea that a Chanel existed since ancient times.

I was wrong they tried but found a cheaper solution, a quite incredible one that worked for 1500 years. Take a look: fantastic movies
