   I just heard on WJR (760 Detroit) that the
Arthur M Anderson is ice locked off the Port
of Cleveland.

   The Anderson was the last ship to see the
"Big Fitz" (Edmund Fitzgerald) in Nov of 1975.

   Looks like WX Woes continue. One US and one
Canadian ice breaker's en-route. The Anderson
usually lays up in Duluth, Not sure shes gonna
make it this year.

Recently read that we may be headed for another record amount of ice on the lakes, even more than last year.

Don't worry. In a few months you'll be on the water listening to the AM gang on the portable.

   Just found this on Boatnerd

http://www.boatnerd.com/news/




Anderson waits while Bristol Bay reaches Cleveland

Arthur M. Anderson is on the 16th day of what would normally be a two and a half day trip. Keeping in good spirits, the crew on the Anderson has changed their AIS destination to "Funny Farm."

Original Report: The Canadian Coast Guard Ship Griffon arrived off Ashtabula before noon Friday to assist the USCG Bristol Bay to Cleveland, conditions at Ashtabula were too difficult to make entry possible with the fuel available on the Bristol Bay.

The Griffon and Bristol Bay spent the day backing and ramming through the ice arriving off Cleveland about 11 p.m. By midnight the Griffon was working through the heaviest ice near the Cleveland harbor entrance.

All icebreakers are expected to return to the Arthur M. Anderson who remains stuck off Conneaut, Ohio.

Winds had shifted to the South on Friday and this should relieve some of the pressure on the southern shore of Lake Erie. After the extensive delays and severe ice conditions the Anderson will likely skip the last trip and head for lay-up in Sturgeon Bay, Wis.

 Hey Don,

       I think the FCC mandated that all coms on the great lakes
move to VHF back around 1970 or so..  There is still some
Hi-Seas stuff around but not much.

S,

 I am shocked and disappointed that you would be doing this - watt an inappropriate picture for a boat anchor topic.  

That is the worst mooring I've seen in a long time. This is how a line should be fixed to a cleat.

Just for the record, Pt. Barrow, Alaska had ten more degrees than we had here in Stonington, CT this morning.  They were at zero, we were at minus 10 at Old Milrad net time.

   The Anderson was the last ship to see the
"Big Fitz" (Edmund Fitzgerald) in Nov of 1975.


"We are holding our own."

Amazing that ships like the Anderson, built in the 1950s to carry ore, that have been pounded by heavy
seas for decades, are still afloat and in service.

Occasionally, I follow the travels of the Anderson and other Great Lakes ships on marinetraffic.com. 
Find a web cam covering a harbor or locks a ship of interest is near and you can see it on the web. 
There are web cams covering the locks at Sault Ste. Marie, Duluth harbor, etc.
