March 09, 2006

HANCOCK - The town is at the top of the list to receive a canal boat from Great Falls near McLean, Va., Mayor Daniel Murphy said Wednesday.

The boat is about 90 feet long and weighs about 35 tons, he said.

Murphy said a group has bought a new barge for Great Falls and is expecting to get it June 6.

The town expressed interest in getting the old boat, but didn't expect that it so quickly.

Hancock needs to "crank it up a notch" to figure out how it might transport the old barge, he said.
