And the Other Lee

The Lee in Lee A. Tregurtha is a woman's name.  She was the wife of Paul R. Tregurtha who was vice chairman of Interlake's Board of Directors and CEO.  The other Lee is not.
The H. Lee White was built by Bay Shipbuilding in Sturgeon Bay, WI in 1973.  She was named after H. Lee White who was the President of American Steamship.  She is one of the river class ships and can navigate the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland.
 In fact, she was returning from Cleveland where she was shuttling ore to the steel mill on the Cuyahoga River. 
 She is heading up to Duluth to pick up another load of iron, I'm guessing.
 Not sure where she will head after that.
 She is kind of a nice looking ship though.

And she continues on.  I was thinking about chasing her up the rest of the river but it was getting late at this point and I'd already put in a pretty full day.
