Catching Up with the Mighty Paul R. Tregurtha

The other ship that I was looking for was the Paul R. Tregurtha.  This is the first time that I've seen her this season.
 She is considered as the Queen of the Lakes because she is currently the largest ship on the Great Lakes.  She is probably likely to stay that way too unless the new lock is built longer than the Poe Lock.
 She's still a pretty nice looking ship.
 Especially as the sun is setting.
 A shot of her pilothouse.
 As you can see, she kind of dwarfs the Algoway.
She was actually heading down to the St. Clair Power Plant.  I'm not sure how much longer this is going to be happening as I heard they are going to shut down the rest of their coal plants.
