Thanks to Ken of Michigan Exposures . . .  her starboard.  You saw her portside back in November.  Might stuff happen with the Boblo boat such that some day we might all freely see her inside and out?

Unlike the case in saltwater vessels, Great Lakes ships like Herbert C. Jackson and M. V. Algolake tie up for the winter;  maintenance happens, but no cargo gets moved.  Re-opening of the Soo Locks is about three weeks away . . . March 25.

The sixth boro has been virtually snowless this winter;  not so, though, areas along the North Coast.  Alice E (1950)  hibernates in Benton Harbor.

Although rough as the Great Lakes can be, there was no ice on the St. Joseph pier when Ken took this foto.

Many thanks, Ken, for keeping us apprised of the season along that other coast.

This just in from Paul Welch . . . Mighty Servant 1, whom you saw here in several posts between December 12 and 19, has recently loaded Sevan Brasil off Shanghai bound for Rio.
