Round Island is an uninhabited island between the islands of Mackinac and Bois Blanc.  Big traffic passes through a relatively narrow passage between Lake Superior and Lake Michigan.

Edwin H. Gott transited recently.  Gott, as I’ve read, has a self-unloader boom longer than standard.

Even at 280′ the boom looks small compared with the 1000′ hull.

 

No long afterward, Erie Trader and this sailboat transited in the opposite direction.

Joyce L. VanEnkvort. 

The sailboat made the passage in Joyce and Trader‘s wake.

A bit over a century ago, this route was served by the oceanic North Land. 

It’s possible this image was enhanced in this engraving.  Sam Clemens was a big fan, it appears, of the Buffalo to Duluth run.
