Interesting watching the horizontal beam go up and down the Speer as she's arriving or departing; assume it's opening hatches on the way into the dock and closing them as the boat backs away from the dock (more noticeable with the night lights). It wasn't until Dennis started posting these speeded-up videos of Two Harbors that I noticed this action...also likely because the Speer more often comes to Two Harbors. Never too old to learn!

Grammie Pat you would be correct. That's the hatch crane going back and forth taking off/putting on the hatch covers. I helped with that process in the 9 yrs. I sailed in the 70's.
Thanks Gary! Also saw the same action on the video posted today (8/24) of the Roger Blough arriving in the dead of night... Grammie Pat
Gary,I will try and add more Canadian Lakers in Two Harbors. Sorry, I've been out of town putting the drones to work.
