The Great Lakes! that would include Duluth, Minnesota!
Brings to mind a great mystery: what happened to the 'Schooner of Hamm's atop San Francisco's HAMM's Brewery? U could navigate by it at night as it was the largest neon sign on the west coast. In college we always ordered our HAMM's beer by the schooner...
if you ordered a 'glass' we knew you were a cheesehead Packer fan!

If the Hamm’s Brewery schooner has been melted down to slag, then let us find that fact out for sure and have a proper burial. And if it still exists, rusting out in a warehouse with broken bulbs and a tuft of wires hanging out the bottom? Then let us make up for the wrongs we’ve committed, and do everything we can to rescue this landmark.

Pride of Baltimore is impressive in the flesh so to speak. Saw her while attending Brest and Dournenez in 96 or maybe 2000.

She would have been the Pride of Baltimore 2. Pride 1 went down in 86 during a squall. Pride 2 was commissioned in 88. I would go with you seeing her in 2000.

When you go to find an image, look on the side. If it says something like 1020x2040 it's pretty big. Then click the small image with the yellow background on Subsim and enter the url. Then click post.

Do these actually have to be ships that can sail under their own power? Or can we post sail ships that are beautiful but no longer sail?

Who could forget about that 1st rate beauty? Here's another good one, the Swedish warship Vasa.
