Bunks in Waterford


Waterford, at the confluence of the Hudson and Mowhawk rivers and the Erie and Champlain canals, is a town rich with history. A couple of our crew members took advantage of a chance to experience some of this history first hand by bunking aboard the tug Chancellor. The Chancellor, built in 1938, is a canal tug owned by the Waterford Maritime Historical Society and is currently being restored.
