Edwin H. Gott Glides Past Mackinac Island Shore



Shipping vessel Edwin H. Gott passes near the shore off Windermere Point Tuesday, September 3, around 2:30 p.m. on its way to Gary, Indiana. The more than 1,000-foot-long freighter was launched in 1978 by Bay Shipbuilding Company and is the most powerful boat on the Great Lakes with a 19,500 horsepower diesel engine. Passing Great Lakes freighters are a common sight on Mackinac Island. Hotel Iroquois is pictured at left and the intersection of Main Street and French Lane is on the right. Shipping vessel Edwin H.
