About one mile west of Belle Isle, the Fitzgerald loses her bow anchor.

The anchor of the Fitzgerald is recovered from the Detroit River,
about one mile west of Belle Isle. It is placed on display at the
Dossin Great Lakes Museum on Belle Isle.
I was part of the team that helped bring up the Fitz's anchor. It was broadcast on TV live when we did it. My name is on the plaque at the anchor.

Wow. I get freaked out by that much open water in the first place. That scares the crap outta me! (I'm a total puss, BTW, because my wife was in the merchant marine during college!)

Thats really cool. I have a friend who was on that team also.

I had those pics emailed to me a couple of months ago. Very cool. I can't even imagine what is like out there.

Those pictures are nuts.....but I totally believe it. I've seen the November squals from the shore of the Keweenaw many times, I can't even imagine what it's like out in the wide open water. No thanks.

I asked the same thing. Greg says it is a stock pic from their website.
