This summer she's sailing historic waterways in Vermont, New York, Ontario and Quebec, docking in towns for a history lesson.<p>The Lois starts from her berth at Lake Champlain Maritime Museum in Vergennes, Vt. First mate Tom Larsen, a strapping guy with a long ponytail and glasses, pulls hand-over-hand on a thick white rope, getting the Lois into the open water.
