Does anyone know why one of the canal boats is once again docked at Bellamy Harbor for the winter, and why is it running all the time? This seems like a waste of money - where is it going to go and what is it going to do during closed canal season?

They're all cokeheads at the utica-rome run and one of the deckhands Jim D Baker is a heroin addict who pushes to the other state workers stupid enough to do that crap. His father used to work for us too fired for pissing dirty too. Doubt any of the crews we have ther could stand a urinalisys. But you know they won't do anything about it unless you're in with the director at Stuy.

You're a bald faced liar. The person your referring to is not a drug addict. He's a good kid. And his father still works as a tug captain with a Coast Guard License, you moron. Both are subject to random drug testing & are still employed, so the're clean. Before you run your mouth you dirtbag, get your facts straight.
