Being an avid boater that looks wonderful and to have the ES to play with even better. I think that there are still quite a few canals in the Northeast US that have been preserved for recreation that have similar sized "narrow" boats that still ply those waters.

Well it's smaller in proportion but pretty big see below

I was REALLY glad to have this picture when I hit an underwater obstruction which lifted the rudder out of its bearing. I referred to the picture to help me feel it back into place, saved having to get the boat hauled out.

Yes we visited the Chesapeake and Ohio canal last year, the bit we saw wasn't in water but I'm told there is a trip boat on a lower section.

Plenty of canals here on the Cape though a bit different. The whole idea of them is access to the gulf though some are land locked and fresh water.
They claim :
Cape Coral has more miles of canals than any other city in the world.

The history of the canals in the US is very interesting as they connected the Great Lakes to the Atlantic and maybe the Mississippi River. I think one of the biggest systems was the Erie Canal.

Give Gracie a pat on the stern for me. She is a grand lady.

You are sooo off topic - "A discussion of anything EasyStar and sometimes more" is becoming "Usually not related to the EasyStar"

To get back on topic: This is my latest FVP set-up:

I came across an area where I think I can fly, but I can't find anyone there to inquire if any one will get unhappy about my doing so Though there is a for sale sign there for more than 6 years.
Here are the co-ordinates: 40.890765,-74.614108

Any ideas?
