What is a line boat?

1 Answer

Line boats were designed for shallow draft, drawing only 3 1/2 feet of water. Erie Canal line boats were the real work-horses of their era and represented about 50 percent of all of the boats traveling the canal. They were built to carry freight, but were also known to carry livestock and even passengers.
