Erie Canal Transit - cost to truck mast?

Hi all,

Planning to transit the canal in August and have read may historical posts on transiting with the mast stored on the boat. Can anyone comment on trucking the mast from Buffalo to Albany? Specifically general cost, shippers used and experience.

Thanks,

Bill

Re: Erie Canal Transit - cost to truck mast?

I have never heard of anyone doing it that way, most folks as you say put them on deck. I have read that folks will use wood that is left from people going the opposite way so they are already kind of set up as cribs to hold them. I was thinking I might like to go up and down it, so leaving it at the facility that pulls it might be an option there. But that would not help your case.

How long is your mast? That would make a big difference.

Call some of the marinas near Tonawanda. They may have some advice. Especially if you are pulling it at their facility
