There are quite a few in the boatnerd community that don't like her. They call her ugly and what not. While I don't think she's a particularly attractive ship, I don't really consider her ugly.
Yes, she has a unique pilothouse but is one of the qualities that attract me to her. I think she was built in a transition period on the Lakes. Many ships were starting to be built with just the rear pilothouse.
I read somewhere that the reason for her unique pilothouse was space. They could get a little more cargo.
At any rate, she passes Mission Point on the way to the Soo Locks.
This picture was taken during the boatnerd cruise, which I will talk about in a bit.
She is waiting along the wall for the Gott to leave the Locks.
She passes by the Stewart J. Cort.
And makes her way into Lake Superior.
A closer view of her pilothouse.
I believe she was heading up to Duluth but I'm not sure.
