We headed through the Troy Federal Lock and onto Waterford where boats were lined up along the municipal wall preparing for a trip up the Erie Canal or a trip up the Champlain Canal. We spent some time exploring the town and walking along the first lock of the Erie Canal. Later we enjoyed docktails with several other Looper boats - Off Leash, See Level, Inconceivable, and others. We made plans with a few boats to leave in the morning and head into the first lock on the Champlain Canal together. We got up early in the morning, washed the boat, and headed out.
