American Victory in for winter layup

There are two boats already in winter layup. By the end of winter we usually have about 12. We don’t usually see any boats arriving here for layup until December, and in a good year, until January. We know this is not a good year. The American Victory came in for layup on November 11th. It is seen above at Fraser Shipyards on Wednesday afternoon, nestled back in what used to be called the Frog Pond. More formally, it sits at the berth just north of #1 dry dock. The Edward L. Ryerson is also at the shipyard in Superior. It came in on November 4th. Photo taken on November 26, 2008
