    Cool Pics! I have been on superior on a good weather day in a little tour boat and thought man this could get really ugly in bad weather.

    Cool, we take our 20 footer out on superior sometimes and never get more than a mile from shore. I know how to handle a boat through nasty chit but it only takes one mistake.

    The wierd thing about Superiot is that right out from Canal park lift bridge is the sewage discharge pipe. Went diving there about 7 years and found that damm water flow. The water got warmer and turned a brown color. Damm near puked into my regulator:eek1:

    I seriously doubt the ship went down. A wreck that major would have had some serious news coverage in this area.

    The Edmund Fitsgerald did sink though.
