Petoskey Stones

No rocks to see here….. just some boats. I visited the Petoseky Municipal Marina on July 29, and noticed a few large boats, so i figured it wouldn’t hurt to take some pictures and share some with you

first stop is Pier A. this is where we find the Lifeboat of the cement carrier JB John, a cement carrier that operated out of the Penn-Dixie plant to the west of here, in what is now the village of bay harbor, where many hard working people in emmet county had year round employment. now its home to summer homes of the wealthy.

I tried to get a picture of the plaque here, but the lighting was very crappy. i can tell you that it was donated by the son of the  ships final Chief Engineer, and in 1997, the boat was fully restored.

Her interior doesn’t look like its fared well against northern Michigan winters, and has probably seen better days

This is just Pier A. I still had to visit B,C,and D, So there will be more to come in the near future. I will leave you with a picture of this cute little cabin cruiser.
