Delaware & Hudson CanalThis is the Boothroyd Dry Dock. You are looking in the same direction as the photograph below. Located at regular intervals along the canal, dry docks were used for repairing old boats and constructing new ones. Entrance was gained through a lock-like device — a top gate was opened to allow the boat to float on canal water onto a dock; the water was then released through a lower gate and the boat was left high and dry. Boats that needed repair were held off the ground with braces so that workers could reach the hulls.
