Voor hen die de wel eens op de Grote Meren geweest zijn.

Onderstaand bericht vanmorgen in het nieuws van de meren.

Miscellaneous Reports
Straits of Mackinac
Reported by Jon Paul Michaels
Wednesday morning found the Edwin H. Gott only as far as Round Island Passage in the Straits of Mackinac after locking down as the last ship of the season at the Soo Sunday night. Also in the Straits waiting for the Gott was fleet mate Phillip R. Clark west bound in the South Passage. After a brief radio conversation between the two, the Gott took the lead westbound breaking a path through the heavy ice that now completely fills the straits area. Following right behind the Clark was the Tug Dorothy Ann and barge Pathfinder coming from Round Island along with it's fleet mate Herbert C. Jackson. Strong Northwest winds slowed the convoy after passing under the Mackinaw Bridge and later the Herbert C. Jackson stopped 3 miles west of the bridge presumably to wait for better conditions before entering the open part of Lake Michigan.

Goderich, ON
Reported by Dale Baechler
The Canadian Progress was struggling all Wednesday afternoon to make the Sifto Salt dock. The strong southerly winds Tuesday night filled the outer harbour with ice making the turn difficult. The Macdonald Marine tugs were assisting and it is unknown if and when she'll begin loading.

Marquette, MI
Though the Soo Locks closed last Saturday, shipping continues in and out of Marquette. Last Saturday, the Mississagi and the John Munson both arrived at the ore dock in the upper harbor. The next day, the Michipicoten arrived. By Monday, all three vessels were loaded and departed for Algoma Steel in Soo, Ont. At that point, ore dock officials thought the season was over except for the James Barker which was scheduled to arrive Wednesday from Superior to unload coal for Wisconsin Electric. However, during the evening, the John Munson arrived back into Marquette to
take on another load of ore for Algoma Steel. Also, on the schedule is the Michipicoten which is scheduled to arrive around 1 p.m. Wednseday. The James Barker's arrival time was not known at the time of this report. Ore dock officials are not sure at this time whether additional vessels are due in. Ship crews on Lake Superior will have to deal with very rough weather which is forecasted through the weekend. This includes very strong winds, frigid temperatures, and snow. Winds Tuesday were gusting well over 30 miles an hour out of the south creating white out condition throughout the region. Wednesday morning, winds turned to the north and gusted over 15 miles an hour with temperatures hovering around 20 degrees but expected to drop near zero Wednesday evening.

Ik weet wel, dat het niet veel met de kustvaart en het forum te maken heeft, maar doe het toch maar.
