Its one of the whaleback boats built for the great lakes. Not sure which one. Google is not helping.

Okay here goes with a guess S.S. Meteor or the S.S. Bay State. When looking at the bridge, my guess is the S.S. Bay State

Nineteen whaleback steamers, one passenger vessel, and 23 consorts were built by McDougall between 1889 and 1898.

Wrong, but very close. He he, a really rich guy bought this one... That doesn't help at all though, does it? :lol:

I feel bad now. Was mine too hard, or just too stupid, or not interesting? With all the combined intelects of you guys I would think a warship would have been too easy...

Then we'll have to keep it out of the Atlantic - just like the KM light cruisers.....
