A lot of you are probably aware of the Great Lakes Icebreakers that begin to be real busy now. These ships with sharp prows to cut through pack ice working tirelessly into the cold winter months to keep the shipping channels open for the Great Lakes freighters that bring supplies from all over the world to the United States. AND of course these freighters take supplies from many of the Great Lakes ports to other ports keeping the economies of all our northern cities going strong.

I think it is high time that we give thanks to these dedicated Michigan folks who are out there in all sort of extreme weather keeping the shipping lanes open and free of ice and of course keeping the ships and crews safe on their journeys.

I rec'd that one too, boy I bet that was cold!
But wanted to tell everyone out there that you can tour the "REAL" US83 Mackinaw up in Mackinac City. It is a museum now and docked right by Sheplers Marine Building. It is really BIG! Has a 75 ft. beam, and 290 ft. long, with engines as big as my house. The water is so clear that you can see the props, both bow and stern. They also have a nice gift shop aboard.
