And We End the Day With the Mississagi

It was nice to end the day with a classic laker.
 I've heard rumors that one of the Lower Lakes ships may end up being on the chopping block.  Based on the way she looks, my guess would be the Manitoba or Cuyahoga but I don't think you can rule out the Mississagi.
 Built in 1943, she stands as one of the older self powered boats still on the Lakes.  Given that she is used by the Canadian portion of Lower Lakes, she probably sees alot of hard use.  So if given the chance, I try to see her when I can.
 However, her paint looks pretty good, so I'm think they may be keeping her around a while longer.
 But you never can tell, so I try to catch her when I can.
And she continues on her way.
