The lead boat turns out to be the snow covered Armco,
a favorite of mine.
This Oglebay-Norton boat is a frequent visitor to the river.
For some reason, our paths cross often.
We have seen her locking through at the Soo
and many times in Lake St. Clair and the Detroit River.
Several years ago, we came upon her in the middle of Lake Huron
while cruising in our sailboat. At that meeting,
we hailed her via radio and confirmed
our navigational position. Ever since, we've kept a special lookout
for her on the lakes.
