Erie Canal shut down for quite a while

Don't know if this has been posted on TF. The Erie canal suffered some significant damage from hurricane Irene. Portions on the canal will closed for quite a while until some of the locks and damns get repaired.

Doe anyone know of folks planning on taking advantage of the November opening?
We'd really like to talk to them.
Thanks

I just came down the Champlain canal. The lock guys said they would be very suprised if the Erie opened at all before next summer.

Only a few boats, mostly Canadian sailors, on the Champlain Canal.
