  3. The Blough was in Sturgeon Bay for a good part of last year.
    I don't know why. Maybe they were refitting the self-unloader to make it more common with other boats. But it was off the lakes from (estimate) July on.

    1. It was undergoing regular winter maintenance, and was layed up because of demand with the economy situation. It was planning on sailing in the spring.

  8. I just saw that damage estimates are about $20 million. Hopefully they can repair and have it out in no time.
