You Are Going To Take A Video Ride On A Thousand Foot Taconite Ore Freighter!

Coming Soon! A friend of mine, who's a Captain on one of American Steamship Company's thousand foot freighters has been bugging me to take a ride on his ship. I'm going to do it and take a lot of video while I'm there. Of course I'll be posting the video here!

Don't Forget To Visit My Great Lakes Ships Blog


My name's Doug and I sailed for 39 years, mostly on the Great Lakes. I'm retired now but I still visit almost every US ship that routinely travels the Great Lakes. Why? Because all my friends are still sailing and they all work on Great Lakes Freighters!
