May she have Gentle Sailing Breezes and Calm Inland Seas. Is she and the Michipicoten the same model. I heard that was a great year to be born Dennis.
I heard some one on the scanner say She looked brand new.
It’s great to see the Arthur M. Anderson in service again; she is the ship that started my love for Great Lakes boat watching and history. My only regret is that I couldn’t be in Duluth to see her in person. Thank you for sharing the video!
Oh dang, I missed her. Thank you so much for recording her sailing out of Duluth. What would we do without you???Sylvia
I missed her 😔😔. Love her so!
Thanks Dennis, for having the Hillside cam on her well before she left the fuel dock, I was able to watch live last evening. Great to hear her whistle again (twice!) and to see her painted like new. Loved hearing the cheers from the crowd! Grammie Pat, West St. Paul, MN
i thought there would be a lot more people out in Canal Park to see her leave. I loved how she sounded her horn twice. What a great ship.
We planned our trip to Duluth a month ago crossing our fingers for good weather and a few boats. Got the weather and boats(Paul Tregurtha as well). But “Wow”! To luck out and be able to see the Anderson in person too. Doesn’t get any better!! Remember it forever! Doug Knibloe
You lucky dog, Doug!! I have seen the Anderson in person in past years, but you got to see her in person on this historic occasion. :) Grammie Pat, West St. Paul, MN
The Fitzgerald sank November 10, 1975.
Yes, the 10th (her last trip began on the 9th). The Split Rock Lighthouse "Edmund Fitzgerald Memorial Beacon Lighting" will be on the weekend this year, Sunday, November 10th; and the 11th is Veterans Day, used to be one of my holidays before I retired. Thinking about going up for that event again,but it can get REALLY cold (the witch of November, as the song says)--so, as with many plans in Minnesota, we'll see what the forecast will be at that time. :) Grammie Pat, West St. Paul, MN
