wap1602 I came through the Champlain locks in '05, very early in the season. None of my paperwork was a) current or b) looked at.

tigerregis My recollection is that when it cost, they checked no's/name and your paid ticket. When it was free, they may have noted it, but I didn't know/care.
Since it is run by the NY Thruway, I doubt they care about individual stickers.
Check the website.

PBzeer Depends on who runs the locks. If Federal, shouldn't be a problem. Not their job. If state run, then they could, but it seems unlikely. My only experience with a lock was in LA, and the tower was too far away for them to be reading registrations.

Champlain or Erie Canal Question

For those of you who have traversed the Champlain or Erie Canals and are based in New York (i.e. registered or documented in NY with a NY port on your stern), did the lockmasters checked to make sure you had a current state registration sticker on your vessel before they let you through? I'm not planning on going through registering my boat until I get to Lake Champlain, but I'm wondering if I'm going to get denied entry to the canals if I wait.
