Nothing goes together like the Oliver H Smith and rough weather. On this site thus far we have the storm in Port Washington where she rode it out. The video "Return home in a 55mph wind" and some current shots lifting in a Northeaster.

A nice wooden model of a 42ft Burger fish tug. It's located on Phil Anderson'a table in kenoshe,Wi. Nor only is Philly a legend of the Lake but his house is a temple of worship for commercial fishermen. I'm very happy to have been invited.
