I see they pump it so it don't scuttle itself.Went to the Art Institute of Chicago today. On the way home, stopped in traffic on I94, looked to my left at the International Port of Illinois, and noticed a ship sitting there rotting away. Zoom in for picture. Also did a quick search and found the following video with info about it. Enjoy.

If I remember correctly they have several Kahlannberg engines and a fishtug on display. They used to build ships and boats in Manitowoc/two rivers area. I also believe they still build Manitowoc cranes there.They also have a nice website if you look it up.

If there were 10' waves, they'd be crashing over the base of the lighthouse. There's a person way out there to the right of the lighthouse taking picture. You can see them from 6:30.Here is a nice video of the Mesabi miner heading out of Duluth in what looks like 10 or more foot surf.
