Scene Around Town: Boats on the Move


The canal locks at Fulton were busy Tuesday night. Around 6:30 p.m., we caught sight of a small parade of boats making the turn along the Oswego River at the city's southern border. The two boats you see here were followed quickly by two others. A group of kayakers had just gotten out of the water at Indian Point Landing, and it was a good thing -- they'd have been tossed by the wake the boats made as they hit the curve doing the speed limit, 30 m.p.h.

    Nice picture but this is North of the city.

    The speed limit on the Oswego Canal is 10 mph not 30. Too bad they didn’t get busted . Ina hurry to get to Minetto before they close for the day. It’s this kind of thing that is washing away the river banks. Next time you drive on 57 or 48 between Minetto and Oswego look across at the river banks. The hills are washing into the river partly because of boat wakes.

    Wrong web site – it is 30 between Fulton and Minetto. Sorry.

    I looked up the speed limit, too, because I wondered why they were going so fast. I was surprised to see the limit was 30.
