Great video about new boats on the lakes and being built now. Specifically the Mark M Barker and the new Equinox class.

New video by the young fellow Trevor. He made a few minor mistakes one being the pronunciation and details of the Adler which is currently steaming off the lakes, leaving Duluth for its mid life refitting. After that, he heads back into service to Alaska in the Aleutians islands.

A really great video starting with old old movie clips and moving to new ones celebrating the The Great Lakes Towing company first 120 years. This is a tug company with tugs at all of the great lake ports. Let me know what you think.

Just off a UP TV station. We can't believe he is alive or made it to the tiny little island.

KEWEENAW COUNTY, Mich. (WLUC) - A Wisconsin man was rescued Monday after spending four days on Lake Superior along the Keweenaw Peninsula.
According to the Keweenaw County Sheriff’s Office, the 35-year-old man was reported missing out of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin.
Investigation revealed that the man parked at Hebard Park, west of Copper Harbor, and decided to go swimming. He ended up getting caught in a current, and was carried about 15 miles to Gull Rock Lighthouse. The lighthouse’s island is located between the eastern tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula and Manitou Island.
The sheriff’s office says the man spent a day at Gull Rock before attempting to swim back to the peninsula.
While swimming, he was spotted by a couple kayaking near High Rock Point, who reported it to law enforcement.
Deputies and first responders from Copper Harbor were able to get the man from High Rock Point. He was then taken to a Mercy Ambulance waiting at Horseshoe Harbor.
EMS personnel brought him to Aspirus Keweenaw Hospital, in Laurium, for treatment. He was later transported to UP Health System-Marquette for further treatment of his injuries. His condition is unknown at this time.
The case remains under investigation by the Keweenaw County Sheriff’s Office.

A west wind is blowing here today and most boats came off the lake. If you go here soon, you see where they are. If you go later, they be back out wherever.
