LAKE CARRIERS' ASSOCIATION represents U.S.-flag vessel operators on the Great Lakes. The Association's 18 member companies operate 55 U.S.-flag self-propelled vessels ("lakers") and integrated tug/barge units ranging in length from 494 to 1,013.5 feet. Cargo movement by LCA fleets and other U.S.-flag Lakes operators has topped more than 125 million tons in a year. Iron ore, limestone and coal are the primary commodities carried by LCA members. Other cargos include cement, salt, sand, and grain. The vast majority of cargos carried by U.S.-flag Lakers move between U.S. ports, in what is commonly referred to as the Jones Act trades.
3   Link   Schooner Man
Schooner Man "is a site for you if you love the sight of the schooner on the sea. The feel of your feet on the deck of the schooner as it rides over the ocean waves. The power of the wind as it fills the sails and move a mighty schooner on it way. If you enjoy the challenge of facing the elements from the clear star filled nights to the wind blowing at gale force... you're a schooner man. We have information on tall ships from the Seven Seas and the sweet seas too. If you are looking for information on a schooner, brig, brigantine, bark and fully rigged tall ship start your search here. So visit with us these tall ships of yesterday and meet the seafarers that sailed them.
