Did you know that there have been approximately 350 shipwrecks on Lake Superior?
Some of these wrecks were infamous 'burning to the waterline - then sinking' events, but the majority seem to arrive from North Easters- generally a fall phenomenon when low pressure graces the Lake and gets things all riled up. They are capable of producing heavy winds and immense waves, largest recorded waveheight (by one of the Lake Superior Bouy stations) was 31ft! Dang that's big.
Make sure when you venture out into the inland waters of Superior you always have a float plan, inform others where you plan to be and you have a reliable vessel for the conditions. Ralphie doesn't want to read about you in the paper, or at the shipwreck museum.
Until next week keep those days filled with health, happiness and laughter...
