I usually post in the bird forum, but was just in Duluth, MN and was fortunate to photograph the Arthur M. Anderson leaving port. The Anderson was following the Edmund Fitzgerald that fateful November 10, 1975, and had last contact with her before she was claimed by the storm. The Anderson's captain actually turned the ship around in those heavy seas to look, abortively, for survivors. ...a piece of maritime history.

Thank you. The Anderson is 767' in length. You wanna see huge, you should see some of the 1000-footers that ply the seaway.

Terrific image of a true Great Lakes legend! I had no idea she was still sailing.

The old-school pilothouse-forward boats have so much more style than the modern pilothouse-aft designs.

Thank you for your kind comments. I agree with you on the forward pilot house design. The 1000-footers are imposing, for sure, but lack the grace of the older design.

I know it is an optical illusion, but they all look like they should snap in two when they are fully loaded.

Based upon a show on either the History channel or the Smithsonian channel that is what may have happened. A large set of waves came and the trough of the wave was so deep and wide that the ship could not support the weight and snapped in the middle. Thus a very quick sinking.

There's an alternate theory that supposes the Fitzgerald got caught surfing the backside of a rogue wave and had her bow driven straight into the lakebed where she was instantly swamped with no survivors.

Deck hatches not being fully dogged down were also suspected.

Great shot, and thanks for the history to accompany it, Allan.

There are many people, even here in the Great lakes area, who are not aware
that the Fitz was lost as recently as 1975. Gordon Lightfoot's ballad probably
has something to do with the misconception.

There's an in-depth Wikipedia (external link) entry about the Edmund Fitzgerald, which taught
me an awful lot about her just now, as well as the Arthur M Anderson's role.
You'll be able to review all the popular theories about why she went down, Jay.

Thank you for you kind comment, Craig, and thanks for the link. There are also a number of books on the Fitz. I've read one and the one thing I recall is that we'll probably never know what caused the sinking.

Very well captured. Nice story too. (I'm a fan of your shots in the Bird section.)
