7/2 - Tin Goose and Algosoo In Sandusky - Don Lee
The Experimental Aircraft Association's Tin Goose started offering rides for the Fourth of July weekend in Sandusky and the first hop of the weekend caught the Algosoo entering Sandusky Bay to head for the coal docks, where American Republic was already under the spout.

Looking west past Cedar Point's coasters we see Algosoo heading for the Town Channel while, in the background, American Republic gets ready to load coal.

The Point's colorful coasters pass beneath one of the Goose's engine- and-strut assemblies.
