Laying Up. Quakertown National Bank. Agency. MediaDynamics. Pen & Ink… around the end of October or November, boatmen along the Delaware Canal began to prepare for winter. The canal boats would be tied off in the center of the canal, the Lehigh Coal and Navigation Company released the canal’s water and the boat would settle to the bed until spring.
