Edward L Ryerson - A Closer Look

Built in 1960, the 730 ft Edward L. Ryerson has shared the title "Queen of the Lakes" due to its beautiful design.
Currently docked in Superior Wisconsin, it is hoped that the Ryerson will be returned to service one of these days.

Learn more about the Edward L Ryerson at: Boatnerds and Duluth Shipping News.

  1. I like your vid icon- it expresses you very well!
    The boatnerd essay did well at explaining the aesthetic features of the Ryerson, which I was able to see in your vid. I haven’t seen a good pic of the stern yet though. Casna
    My repost of the link didn’t work either. I don’t know if it’s my tablet. Also the search tool on boatnerd was showing me a ‘forbidden’ message.

  2. How about a nice fly-around of the stern? More attractive ship than the present-day barges.
    "Fast Eddie" was a good nickname.

  3. Is there talks about it returning to service? What company owns the ship

  4. No, but the economy is turning around. It would probably need an unloading system built onto it's deck. Sure would change the looks.

    1. Please check the essay on this but I believe they would have to reconstruct the holds with sloping sides in order to work with a self unloaded along with other problems.Casna

    Here’s the index page to Ken’s photos and articles. I could swear these links worked before, but maybe I’m wrong. Casna

  7. Thanks for the neat video of the Ryerson! You captured what I can never see. She is a great boat! Sometime maybe you can even capture her stern. I love stern shots!! Thanks again. Jeff H.
