Fall in the boat yard

Crowley’s is on the Calumet River, with a sizable port operation inland. I never tire of watching the ships come through. This Laker went by traveling backwards unassisted.

Earlier we had another back in, with tugs fore and aft. Pretty cool.

In between ships and barge traffic we bring yachts in and land them at our docks. Most come from the Chicago harbors 7-15 miles away.

About 600 of them go into heated storage.

Pretty cool place.
