Pic Description: I was surprised to see this huge ship so close to the shoreline. Mike's photo made me think of posting this pic. Curt said the ships lay up like this to avoid inclimate weather conditions.

I bought a book about the 10 last steamships on the great lakes. If you know the name of this older ship, I may have details about it to share.

Looks like either the Clymer or the Rogers City, both steam turbine boats from the michigan limestone fleet, home port Rogers City, Michigan. These boats are practically twins so they're hard to tell apart from any distance.
