On the Great Lakes ships are called boats despite the fact that some of them are well over 1000' in length.
Most of my photos of lake freighters come from Goderich Ontario Canada.

|Salt being loaded in to the Agawa Canyon. The Canyon has been scrapped, and the salt storage dome was largely destroyed in the August 2011 tornado.|
|Tugs Helping the Mantadoc into the inner harbour at Goderich
(note: Mantadoc became the Teakglen, was laid up in Goderich for grain storage, and was sold and is still in operation). She was renamed "Maritime Trader" and was sold again to Lower Lakes Towing.
P & H's Mapleglen shows off her beautiful stern section.
This boat is a straight decker working the grain trade.
(Note: as of 8/2003 the Mapleglen and Oakglen are out
of service and were towed to Turkey to be scrapped).
The Canadian Transport shares the small channel with pleasure
boats on a hot summer day in Goderich.
