Adapt.
Or you'll be left behind.
I found the Edward L. Ryerson just like everyone else has for the last five years, resting peacefully in Sturgeon Bay, WI.  Laid up in 1998, she has not hauled any tonnage since. Once regarded as an state of the art lake freighter, the Ryerson finally succumbed to the pressures of modern material handling. The trait that makes her uniquely beautiful also keeps her fast at her mooring, she's a straight-decker.  
Just sitting there, waiting a for a call that may never come.
They all have a story to tell, tag along and I'll try to tell it.
