Ilion city dock on the Erie has an unusual 11 foot depth and was being dredged.  $1/ft, power, RR and hot showers.  Drat, the Remington rifle factory and tour was closed.  And when on the SE Atlantic ICW Adventure, we missed the world's largest kazoo factory and tour  due to an unexpected closure.  Our two biggest tragic disappointments in all our cruising.

Canal workboats often dock at Ilion...hence the giant bollards, and why you need long lines just in case.

Trade a Yacht marina, a typical mom & pop marina (many with campgrounds), $1.75/ft on the north side of Lake Oneida.  25 mile fetch on this lake can be too much for a CD in SCA conditions

winds on upper Lake Oneida at 23mph gusting to 33 today, stayed in place at marina. 1 rain day and 1 wind day out of 36 days on boat.   I caught that towel at just the right moment, don't you think?  Yes, the marina had washers and dryers.
