Prints of classic lake vessel types could include a lake schooner, a wooden steam propellor or "steam barge", a side-wheel or stern-wheel passenger vessel, an early lake ore boat (houses forward and aft), a cross-lake carferry, and a modern self-unloading bulk carrier.

I'm just a part-time boatnerd so I find it confusing when "Grassy" or other reference points are mentioned. Would it be possible to create a simple map that showed the locations of common ships reference points? Just a thought. Scott in Reception Hell.
