I’d planned a gallivant along the coast of Lake Erie to see ice, maybe even walk and fish on it, as I did many decades ago.  February would normally be a good time for that, but my actual schedule depended on someone else, my son.  Well . . . I was told that a week earlier, ice fishing was happening here . . .  Click on the map below to make it interactive.

Huron OH?  I admit never having heard of it.  It’s just east of Sandusky, which I saw here, and roughly between *7 and *8, posts on the Great Coast that I did last fall.

This two-part panorama (above and below) shows the turning basin near the mouth of the Huron River, which might be fun to canoe one of these years.

I use AIS to determine which roads I take on a gallivant like this, and this surely is not the green icon I saw, but I’m thrilled the icon led me here.  Adam E. Cornelius is not as old as it looks–launched 1973–and I’ve no idea what her fate will be.  And she’s Toledo’s pride.

 

One of these years, I hope to see her, under this name or another, back hauling Great Lakes minerals around our Great Coast.

I used to see this as a kid from my first beach while learning to swim.  Those eroded cliffs defined the edge of my world, making me wonder whether they could be an eighth wonder beckoning me to become the discoverer.

I find myself looking at this landscape again, six decades later, and wondering instead what the research boat is probing,

following what appears an erratic path,

past my first lighthouse, which back then I never imagined could be seen from this angle.  Here’s the lighthouse in winter almost a decade back.

Here’s the research boat, RV Kaho, whose christening I attended here three years ago.

Might these be among the bottom features Kaho seeks?

Let me start with the oldest ones not yet published.  There’s something timely about Tracy, the vessel below.  I took the photo from mid river between Ogdensburg NY and Prescott ON.  Are you hankering for a project?  Details below.

The next day I got this photo as we entered Oswego.  RV Kaho was christened in this post I did a little over two years before.  Its mission is research on habitat and fish in Lake Ontario.  Here’s an article on that christening that mentions the meaning of the name in Ojibwe.

I shot this last week as it was tied up at the dry dock in Bayonne, and wish I could have gotten closer.  Ferdinand R. Hassler was christened in 2012.  Its namesake is this gentleman, distinguished in two countries.

Line has had light work this season in its role as a 65′ ice breaker.  Here’s an article I did on this 54-year-old vessel a few years back.

I’m not sure where 343 is these days;  Feehan seems to be covering the North River these days.  Click here for photos of Feehan as she transited from Lake Ontario to the sixth boro.

And here’s a twofer… a Staten Island ferry and a small USACE survey boat, I believe.

So here’s why the top photo of Tracy is timely;  it’s for sale.    The minimum bid is $250,000 Canadian, which is a mere $189,880 US, given today’s exchange rate.

Tenders . . . I have to find more out about them.  Here’s #10 and

This is a rainy morning on the Oswego Canal.  I saw a snapping turtle and a pike playing here.  Not with each other.  With their food, though.

Kaho is a former research vessel.  Click here to see what has recently replaced it.   The new Kaho was built in Ohio;  this blue hulled vessel was built for USGS in 1961.
