Good evening,

My historical novel is progressing, thanks in part to the help I've
received from many of you. I'm back to trouble you with yet another detail
question, this one concerning Hudson River travel.

I have to bring a working class character up the Hudson River from
Tarrytown to Albany in the year 1789. Can anyone tell me about the type of
boat such a person would likely have available to them for transport? And
approximately how long might such a journey take? I'm assuming that river
travel would have been the most efficient for a trip of that length.

Thank you once again for your help.
