Bay Shipbuilding in Sturgeon Bay is one hopping place.

And, yes, that is ice in the channel.

This last freighter, the Edgar B Speer, is 1,000 feet long. The mind boggles.

This often happens when I am out on a quest: what I THINK I want to shoot is not what I end up shooting. On Sunday, I wanted to see what I could get of the ships currently in Sturgeon Bay and I took a…wait for it…wait for it…boatload of pictures. Some freighters, like the Speer shown above, are mammoth. Pretty cool. Eventually, though, I discovered the hardworking tugs and it was the tugs who really captured my interest. Meet them next time.

  1. Those are fantastic shots! I love the big ships. I’ve been fortunate enough to catch them up close and personal like these, as they travel up and down the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland, and out onto Lake Erie. Good stuff!

    We were there last week and saw the tugs in the ice. Can’t wait to see them from your POV.
