    The retirement of a Great Lakes freighter.-gctid368899

    Detour is a small village at the end of the St. Marys River which starts in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan/Canada. It ends in Lake Huron and is our start of the North Channel.

    I have seen this frieghter for some time but never knew what it was. Now I know.

    I hope this is of interest to others.

      They have one now in Sault Ste. Marie. I haven't been on it but it is open for visitors. Its next to one of the city marinas.

          We toured one in Duluth a few years ago, the guides were ex crew members. It was the most interesting part of the trip because of the guides knowledge of the ship & it's history.

              Very cool!!

              The William A. Irvin is a museum in Duluth - getting to explore an old ore boat is pretty awesome!! And at Halloween the UMD theater club will scare the crap out of ya.
