The sale has been completed and she has been resold to Lower Lakes Towing so I would expect to see her and Voyageur Pioneer with gray hulls and white and black trim. Also, Lower Lakes acquired the David Z, Earl W, and Wolverine. The Wolverine is now Canadian flagged and renamed Robert S Pierson. The David Z with be renamed Manitowoc and the Earl W will be renamed to Calumet which will be confusing as the "real" Calumet was scrapped last year. They probably will wear gray as well. So, bottom line is that Lower Lakes has purchased 5 ships and has two more under charter.

Nice shots, it was good that you got several pictures since she might have a new, less colorful paint job (and a new name) soon. Still nice to see a classic like this sailing no matter what.

Thanks Laurent. I took lots of pictures but when I got home I noticed that because of lighting I had to delete most of them. It was overcast and a few minutes it would be to dark and the next minute too bright!!!
