The schooner Lois McClure, a complete replica of a 1862-class sailing canal boat, was docked in the Syracuse Inner Harbor Saturday and Sunday and was open to the public as a part of the 1813 Bicentennial Tour, travelling the canals born of the War of 1812. Middle, Mary Lou Mavin, of Chittenango, makes a video of Art Cohn, project historian and tugboat captain, for their mutual friends at Chittenango’s Canal Museum. At left is Mike Mavin, Mary Lou’s husband. Cohn said he and other crew members have made many friends at port towns they’ve visited over the years since the boat was launched in 2004. The schooner was constructed in Burlington, VT, and is owned by the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum. She is named in honor of Lois McClure, who, along with her husband, Mac, has been a major contributor to many worthy community projects in the greater Burlington area.
