"Rolling on the River" in a St. Lawrence Skiff

Listen to this story
Summer in the Thousand Islands is filled with the sound of boats. The throaty rumble of a Gar Wood run-about, the roar of a cigarette boat, the throbbing diesels of a Seaway freighter. This weekend in Clayton, the 7th Annual Festival of Oar, Paddle & Sail celebrates the boats that don't make noise. People-powered boats.
But though motorized craft aren't featured at the festival, they ARE invited to drop by the museum for a "boat-in" movie, a marine version of a "drive-in". The featured film is a movie that honors the natural and cultural heritage of the St. Lawrence. David Sommerstein spent a day in a skiff with the film's director and has our story.
