No 378's for me, 140', 270', 110', 180', and lastly 225', all full tours.

I plan to drink way too much, sleep in, grow a beard & hippie hair, and piss my wife off while I am at home and she goes to work. Then this fall off to a Great Lake Freighter as an Engineer.

the Ryerson is the place to be. Nicest vessel on the lakes. (plus I am not a fan of the self-unloaders)
