  1. Thanks for posting this, Dennis, I was watching live and really enjoyed watching all the comings and goings at the boat launch, a very busy Sunday. The guys with the pontoon actually had to pull the boat back out and try again, looked like they forgot to unfasten something--so maybe that's why the other guys, who had been waiting quite awhile backed in and unloaded on the same side of the dock before the pontoon left. I was impressed with the last guy with the red truck--took him a few tries to get the trailer backed in just right (reminds me of me trying to back a boat trailer), but he was by himself and still got his boat on the trailer and pulled away faster than any of the others. Later on, it was also busy when the ones who went out came back. Grammie Pat, West St.Paul,MN

  2. I wonder what other boatnerds think about this...I feel the Indiana Harbor's captain was concerned with the fishing boats swirling around the harbor before he came in and the couple boats who went out behind him as he was trying to straighten out to go into the dock. Other boats, such as the Edwin Gott, have swung the back end further into the harbor, inside the breakwater, to then head straight into the dock, but the Indiana Harbor's captain nosed her in closer to the dock and then straightened the boat to come in to the dock. Or maybe the Indiana Harbor usually does it that way at Two Harbors--I think I've only seen her come into Duluth, where we don't see how she docks. Just wondering.... Grammie Pat, West St.Paul,MN
