A "Salty" on the Detroit River

If you live in or around the City of Detroit, you probably know about the Diamond Jack Boat Cruises on the Detroit River.  Every weekend all summer the Diamond Jack Boats take people either up river to the mouth of Lake Huron or downriver to the mouth of Lake Erie on cruises that last about 2 hours.  Food snacks and drinks are available on board the boats. The cruises sail rain or shine.

On one such cruise in the summer of 2000, I took these pictures with a Leica Digital Camera of a "Salty" (ocean going ship) while on a downriver cruise.  Here are some pictures of the "Stefania", home ported at Valletta, delivering steel to the Detroit Harbor Terminal.
