Near miss with the Manitowoc

Big boats traverse the Big Lake, and Hello World and I had a close encounter. What are the chances of getting squished by an ore carrier? Only our 5th day out already we’re having near death experiences. Fun! Lazily crossing from North Manitou to Northport, lapping up the sun and thankful for a little wind after a morning becalmed. What’s that low rumble, been hearing it for awhile now? Hey, maybe that isn’t a sailboat on the horizon, maybe that’s… a big boat. They come up pretty quick when they’re pointed right at you.
