Saw this ad on the UP CraigsList. If we pooled $10 each would only need 1350 of us to buy it and put it out of commission. :cool:

We saw 2 of these in Manistique this summer and wondered what job they did, surprises me it's all closed in. Put me in for a $100.00 and sack of coal!!

They are closed in because of the rough conditions of the Great Lakes. These boats can actually roll into the waves and not sink (kind of like a bobber). I saw a few of these in Grand Traverse Bay of Lake Superior. They are pretty cool and well suited for commercial Great Lakes fishing.

I wonder what has become of the Tribal commercial tug that was moored in Mosquito Bay, just off the downbound approach to the Soo Locks. Owner allowed it to sink overwinter, USCG refused to take action after MDNR balked (decision process went all the way to Lansing and cascaded back down) on moving initially. Several folks in the media, including the Tribal newspaper editor continued to push for Tribal Government intervention. Vote was held, outcome was to opt to take no legal action against the boat's owner via Tribal Court system. The MDNR was revisting an effort to remove the vessel and sequester any pollutants on board. This was the vessel's status as of April of this year.

Could this be the same vessel? I doubt it.

Then I guess that tribe should stay silent on any project(s) that may "pollute" the local watershed.

I pulled a net buoy off the beach of L. Superior last year that consisted of a crutch with a liquid laundry soap bottle duct taped to it with a piece of orange safety flag attached. The net weight was a five pound dumbell plate. Turned it over to the beach police to return to the local KBIC gillnetter.

At least now that we have one enforcement person (no, she does not issue citations), he no longer sets inside the required .5 mile zone off the mouth of the spawning tributaries in the two harbors here.

Regarding the Tribal gillnet tug abandoned in Sault Ste. Marie. The case is working its way back up through the MDNR enforcement division's chain of command to make a determination of if or when to take action to remove the vessel prior it spending its second winter swamped in the Mosquito Bay/Soo Locks entry area.
