Description:
List examples of locks, planes, lifts and other methods to move boats between different elevations.
Expanded Description:
It is common for bodies of water to be at different elevations. Waterways connecting these bodies of water and rapids in a river are typical examples of places that cause problems for boats attempting to navigate this elevation difference. This category is for listing locks, planes, lifts and other examples of solutions to this problem.

You must physically visit to create or log a waymark in this category. Waymark notes may be created if you have comments or feedback but have not physically visited the site.
Instructions for Posting a Waterway Locks, Planes and Lifts Waymark:
Find a lock, plane, lift or other method for moving boats between different elevations. Post a description along with capacity, historical information and pictures. Include typical types of traffic and cargo if available.

Your waymark submittal must include at least one photograph of the lock, plane or lift that you took yourself during your visit.

Locks, planes and lifts proposed as Waymarks may be currently active, in existence but not active, or purely historical and no longer in existence. Waymarks for items that no longer exist should reference the physical location where they once stood and include a picture of the area.

A single canal may have several sets of locks. Each set may be listed as a different waymark. For example, individual waymarks may be listed for the Gatun Locks, Pedro Miguel locks and Miraflores locks on the Panama Canal.

The waymark name should be the name of the lock, lift or plane.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
Logs marked as “visits” should be made after physically visiting the waymark location. Include a picture taken during the visit. Notes may be logged by individuals who have visited the web site or looked at the online information and would like to provide comments or feedback on the waymark.
