Welland Canal (IL MOSTRO)
Guided two yachts up the canal yesterday, Sea Safari 85' Pacific Mainer and Il Mostro (Italian for 'the monster' ) a 70' Puma Ocean racing boat.
When she arrived Welland Canal she had a 109.5' air draft and we had four bridges to go under which had a 110' air draft. The captain decided to take of the 5 ' communication antenna just incase the water levels were high. Il Mostro is heading for Chicago and will be in the Mackinac sailboat race .
She is owned by the owner of Sea Safari. It was a 8 hour trip up the canal.
Here are a few pictures of our trip.
