Passing us on the land side first was Algoma Niagara.  She’s a recent arrival in the lakes, from China via the Panama Canal.

Finally, here’s a first sight from a distance of Joseph H. Thompson, a truly unique laker built in Pennsylvania salt water in 1944.

The tug here is Joseph H. Thompson Jr., a 146′ x 38′ vessel made from steel left over from the conversion of Joseph H. Thompson–the ship–to a barge.

 

The Blue Water Bridge gradually emerged, like a giant turtle, from Lake Huron waters.

Tug Michigan and barge Great Lakes has appeared on this blog before . . .

Recently I saw old photos of her with the Amoco logo on the stacks.
