SALTIES 2000-2001

This new publication owes its origin to the "LAKERS & SALTIES" series and was "spun-off" this year as a separate publication to benefit those boatwatchers whose interest in salties may be greater than their interest in lakers (or vice versa!). This change has allowed for even more information to be contained without any commensurate increase in price. Purchasers of this book will be advised when the new "LAKERS 2000-2001" book becomes available. Included in this 60-page book are:

  • a comprehensive cross-referenced index listing these ships with their previous and subsequent names; and

  • a forty-four page section giving details of these ships, i.e. builders, hull numbers,loyd's Register numbers, dimensions, engines, launch dates (where known), owners and managers (past and present), flags flown, ports of registry, official numbers, other pertinent historical data and particulars of the 547 visits to the Great Lakes made by these 280 ships in 2000 (including cargoes carried); and 

  • listings of abbreviations used for vessel types, flags and principal ports of call; and

  • details of the foreign-flagged cruise ships that are scheduled to be active on the Great Lakes in 2001.

This is the only publication available that covers all of the foreign-flagged ships visiting the Great Lakes during 2000 in such detail.  such detail.
