The Edwin H. Gott and the Bridge
As I was watching the Cort pass by, I looked over towards the west and saw that another ship was approaching the Bridge.
From this distance, I could tell that it was a thousand footer, but I wasn't sure which one.
Then I saw the distinctive scheme of the Great Lakes Fleet ships. If I had rememberd that the Speer doesn't have a boom, I would have identified her faster. But I had it down to one of two ships.
At this point, I could tell she was the Gott. I have seen her in the
in my neck of the woods but not lately.
So this would make four one thousand footers in one day. I'm pretty sure that's a record for me. Granted, they weren't all in the same place.
She approaches the Bridge.
A little closer.
And she passes under the Bridge. It almost looks like she isn't going to clear the bottom but she did.
