  1. Dennis,any idea why Assiniboine needed a tow the other day??

  2. I'm liking the change in typeface, color and style - very classic, befitting the venerable boats you film for our enjoyment.

  3. According to Boatnerd, this is why it was towed:

    12/15 - Duluth, Minn. – There are plenty of vessels that go under the Aerial Lift Bridge but they're not usually being towed. CSL Assiniboine, a 739-foot-long laker, was towed all the way from Thunder Bay to Duluth by the tug Leonard M, arriving Friday night.

    The Assiniboine was on her way to the Fraser shipyard for repairs. The ship was damaged by a submerged buoy while traveling on the St. Marys River near Sault Ste. Marie last week.
