    Saw something similar in Le Claire, IA a couple of weeks ago. I wonder how far ahead a tug has to start turning to make it happen.

    Bill - I always check on both sides of the ore dock on my way "to the park" to check out the sunset when I'm in town. Unfortunately it's a 1,100 mile ride:(- Great pic! Show 'em the yooper dome facing the other way.

    I was working in Detroit in the mid 1970's and I looked out of the window and saw a large ore boat on the Detroit River. Yes, it was the Edmund Fitzgerald and it was long and beautiful. It was really sad when it sank in a gale on Lake Superior that November.
