Cuyahoga below Lock 4 west.  The east side of the flight locks was closed for repair so a few ships would go down the west side, then a few would go up the west side.  Really slowed down traffic because they have to pass 4, 5, 6 and 7, before   anything could go the opposite direction.

Run-about / man-overboard boat.  Carries 6 people.  Has the ship's IMO Number, name, capacity and dimensions painted on it.  I suspect the vertical structure is flotation to upright the boat should it roll over.
