9/11 -  Detour, Mich. Harriman steering pole - Marc VanderMeulen
As of Friday 4 September, the Lewis G. Harriman has a steering pole. Marc Dease saved the wooden pole from the J. Burton Ayers when she became the Cuyahoga and after some restoration work, including a new spear tip made by Ed Kroodsma, all we needed were enough hands to swing the pole from its resting position, pointed back at the pilothouse, to its proper orientation. With John Mills pulling from the beach, Marc lifting from a stepladder on deck, Andrew Mills running the hand winch and Jill managing cables, the pole was set out. Photos by Judy Mills.
