Down through the ages, the fascination and romance of ships has captivated the thousands who have watched the leviathans plow through calm or troubled global waters. Great Lakes ships, as well as the men who have labored aboard them, have added their enthusiasts since La Salles's Griffon first sailed these inland waters. We remember these ships, old and new, and now recall in story and pictures some of the fascination we have felt for them.
