Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

That lock looks like the ones leading down (or up) near Montreal, Canada.
From memory they were very narrow, consequently the narrow size ships that use the Great Lakes.

Beauharnois Locks...

Umm...not much of a view to go on. I think you would have to have been there to hazard a guess.

You're pretty close, Mark, it is a lock on the St. Lawrence Seaway. It's a little further west, though.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Close enough Mark. As I said earlier you were in the right system, the St Lawrence Seaway. The picture is of a lock on the Welland Canal. The lock is 760 Ft long, 80 Ft wide, 25 Ft deep and has a lift of 45 Ft. A 36 foot sail boat looks very small. The Welland canal connects Lake Ontario and Lake Erie by passing Niagara Falls with 8 locks over 26 miles and a total lift of 326Ft. It took us 8 hours to transit the canal. I've heard of others that took up to 12 hours.
