The oak remnants of the Marguerite — bottom ribs, side rails and keel — that were pulled from the canal in 1987 stayed in the museum until they are used in the reconstruction of the boat. The pieces were numbered as they were pulled from the canal so each could be laid out in the order they were found. (Delphos Herald/Stephanie Groves)

DELPHOS — The Delphos Canal Commission members have been busy this past year reorganizing their exhibition space, restoring historical architecture and implementing lighting enhancements within the museum. The biggest project on their agenda this year is bringing the canal boat the Marguerite “to life” through reconstruction of the vessel itself and a visual depiction of what life on a canal boat was really like.

Trustee Linda Baker said the tentative plan is to build a frame of the Marguerite with a cross-section of one end replicating the design and size of the original boat so visitors can understand the concept of how large the boat is. The remaining square footage of the boat — originally 70-80 feet long and close to 14 feet wide — will be an open display of the primitive construction and showcase furniture, equipment and other items that would likely be found on board.
