I thought y'all might find this interesting. I always did like this old fishing tug; it was featured in a photo I took a few years ago.

After going out of service it was about to be scrapped, when the city stepped in and asked to put it on static display.

Aparently it will be restored and placed on permanent display just down the riverfront from the remains of the Lottie Cooper, a 19th century 3-master whose skeleton is preserved complete with centerboard.

Interesting.

My brother took me up to Sheboygan to see the Lottie Cooper. Interesting sort of display although I wonder how long it'll last. It's the largest center boarder I've ever seen.
