What is the age of our Great Lakes Maritime Fleet? How many ship yards can handle 1000 ft. boats? MTW ownes two(2) ship yards on the Great Lakes (Bay Ship & Lorain). Where are these bulk haulers going to get their new ships built?
If you want to see something impressive, go to Sturgeon Bay, Wi. in the middle of Winter and see the ships wintered every where. Where there's a dock, there's a ship.
A SHIP CAN CARRY A BOAT , BUT A BOAT CAN'T CARRY SHIP
