The largest warship to ever transit the Great Lakes. The 8-inch gun Heavy Cruiser USS Macon came through the Seaway in 1959 to officially open the new waterway. She is seen here in the Eisenhower Lock. Note the missing radar antenna, removed in Boston to allow passage through the Seaway's lift bridges due to her high air draft. The ship had all sorts of problems rubbing bottom & bumping into walls on her way through due to the large size, power full engines, and the open ocean design of her hull.
