Beautiful shot of the Menominee. Hopefully she still has some years left in her as she approaches the big 40!

Looking good for a 1967-built boat.

See the name "Holmsund" underneath Menominee. Her old name's suffix, -sund, must have been a former fleet name. A fleetmate, which retained the name Munksund, was a frequent caller to Erie a few years back, until she was scrapped. Apparently when the owners bought this one, they renamed it, but kept the Munksund name.

Along with the Munksund, another fleetmate, Marinette was scrapped a few years ago. Shame, too, this is one of the best looking salties I've seen in a while.
