Port Huron Boatnerd Gathering

June 1st saw a gathering of boatnerds in Port Huron.  Since this has been covered by those there and boats are not the focus of my blog I will only post a few pictures.

While we were there the brig Niagara headed down the river.  She will be moored at South Bass Island over the 4th of July to celebrate the anniversary of Admiral Perry's victory over the British in the War of 1812.

The CSL Tadoussac and the Frontenac were moored across the river.  They are in temporary layup.

You can see they're sitting pretty high in the water.  Here you can see the bow thruster which is is used to help the ship maneuver.

While taking the Huron Lady II on a brief cruise we encountered the Michipicoten downbound as she approached the Saint Clair River.

The Michipicoten as a squall passes behind her on Lake Huron.

The Michipicoten approaches.

Stormy Seas.

The Michipicoten enters the Saint Clair River.


  1. I'm jealous that you got a picture of the Niagara in action. Love that picture of the Michipicoten....

    1. You were having your fun.

      Yeah, I like the pics of the Michipicoten too.
