TIL: In 1958 Great Lakes freighter Carl D. Bradley sank with the loss of 33 lives. Over the objections of witnesses who survived the sinking, the Coast Guard concluded the ship did not break in two, shielding its owners from liability. In 1997 the shipwreck was discovered in 2 sections 90 feet apart en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_…

[WP] On November 11th, 2676, a downright ancient lake freighter pulled into port in Sandusky. Her dirty smoke stacks and ancient design contrasted heavily with the modern nuclear freighters, and she drew quite a spectacle. Another thing that brought attention was her name: SS Edmund Fitzgerald.

My first attempt at a large grid ship that didn't look like a tortoise. Was going for the iron ore freighters on the Great Lakes for inspiration. After finding that she entirely looked like a dong, and the bridge was cramped I expanded it and increased the sides a bit. Now it looks even worse πŸ˜‚ reddit.com/gallery/qemdo0

The freighter in this picture is called the Arthur M. Anderson. This freighter was the last to have radio contact with the Edmund Fitzgerald which sank on November 10, 1975 in Lake Superior. The Fitzgerald was made famous in song by Gordon Lightfoot in 1976. I took this pic in 2016 on Lake St Clair.

Lake Freighters and looking for employment as a first timer.

I live in Chicago but I've been spending most of the pandemic helping my family out in Vermont. I'm about to move back to the city and wanted to look into work on the lakes, but don't have any licensing. I've gotten conflicting answers just googling but I'm happy to do hard work. Things would be different if I had to spend a year on licensing and certification. How possible is it to find an entry level job in great lakes shipping, and what do you need to do it?
