Lake Boats


This full-color pictorial pays tribute to the historic ships at work on the Great Lakes, from ancient cement boats, such as the 100-year-old St. Marys Challenger to venerable "straightdeckers," self-unloaders and 1,000-footers sailing under the familiar flags of prominent Great Lakes fleets including Algoma Central, Upper Lakes, Lower Lakes, American Steamship, Canadian Steamship Lines and others.

Lake Boats celebrates the mariners and working ships of the Great Lakes with an extraordinary range of images, from close-ups and interior views of engine rooms and pilothouses to panoramic scenes of these noble workhorse vessels sailing North America's inland seas.
