Great Lakes freighters (Lakers) { 13 images } Created 12 Feb 2012

Sturgeon Bay is home to Bay Ship, now part of Fincantieri Marine Group. It builds ships for US commerce (Jones Act) oil field supply vessels and parts of some U.S. military landing craft. In the winter, at least 15 lakers -- 600-1,000-foot bulk carriers, come in for inspection and repairs. It is also home to Palmer Johnson which makes luxury sports yachts.
