This is a very entertaining and informative tour of a Great Lakes Freighter. The boat itself was a flagship and a showpiece of its time, and therefore has rather interesting features. The boat is in excellent condition. Our tour guide, a former sailer who sailed for the company that ran this boat, was incredibly personable and entertained our group with informative facts about sailing and lively accounts of first-hand experiences. This was one of the best tours of its type that we have taken. Highly recommended for anyone interested in history, American manufacturing and industry and the maritime arts.
