Motor vehicles –except two for the police and fire–are not permitted on Mackinac Island;  a RORO named Corsair runs supply trailers to the dock, where all cargo is transshipped onto wagons pulled by horses.

Corsair, that RORO, was built in Rhode Island by Blount in 1955.

Bicycles and horses provide transport on the island.

Horses require that straw and hay are

essential cargoes.

Landing craft are useful around the iIsland as well.

I’m not sure if this LC has a name, but LC-6050 is still legible.

Wooden craft like Maumee Mistress recently participated in the wooden boat show I hope to get up to see one of these years.

Ann Marie Rose is clearly not wood, but I include it here because it’s the fourth time  (4th!!) I’ve seen it since April, when I caught them entering the Harrows.

Elegante was in these same waters two years ago . . .

as seen here (scroll).

Here was 1 and another I could have called “summer yachts” as well.  And then there are this one and another . . .  again . . .

Pilar is a stunner in so many ways . . .  registered in Key West and originally Elhanor, I believe it was built in Brooklyn one hull BEFORE Hemingway’s Pilar.

I caught it in Narragansett Bay . . . .

Off the Bronx, this unnamed unidentified vessel, likely NOT built in the Bronx,  roared past.

Some interesting boats on the wall at Waterford here include Solar Sal, Manatee, and Little Manatee.

Manatee is a Kadey Krogen with an unusual paint scheme.

I took this photo of Solar Sal last September and had intended to get back to it.  Later last fall it distinguished itself by hauling cargo.

Tjaldur is an unusual

Here’s another shot of the rare Whiticar Boat Works yacht Elegante pushing back water.

And sometimes it takes going a long distance to find a Bronx-built yacht like this 1937 Consolidated named

Sea Spray.  I’d love to see her under way.  For more Bronx built boats, click here.

And the trip goes on . . . here heading for the Straits, where it seems there are underwater sights I missed.

Meanwhile, on the surface of the top of Lakes Huron and Michigan, there are plenty of things to look at, like this old ChrisCraft and
