Schoonmaker. this ship is docked in Toledo Oh and is part of the National Great Lakes Museum . From the wheel house the the engine space, there are many great photo ops on this ship.
Instruction in various techniques will be presented. Using fill flash and interior panorama shots, plus more.
Admission to the National Museum of the Great Lakes and the Freighter is not included in the event fee. Museum and Ship admission is $15.00 ( Discount for seniors, AAA and Military )
After our time on the ship , we can head over to Tony Packo's for the Hungarian hot dogs made famous by Max Klinger on Tv's MASH.

This is not a dedicated tour. The ship will be open to other touring the ship. I have scheduled this early in there season to avoid summer or school crowds.
Due to its historical accuracy, the Col. James M .Schoonmaker Museum Ship is not handicap accessible. Narrow, steep staircases are common throughout the Schoonmaker and may provide difficulties in accessibility for some.

Col. James M. Schoonmaker

The Col. James M. Schoonmaker was built at the Great Lakes Engineering Works of Ecorse, Michigan. She was christened by Gretchen Schoonmaker daughter of the ship’s namesake and launched on July 1, 1911. The Schoonmaker was unsurpassed in both size and elegance. On her maiden trip, she carried 12,650 net tons of coal from Toledo, Ohio to Sheboygan, Wisconsin. The ship held the title of “Queen of the Lakes” as the largest ship operating on the Great Lakes until April 14, 1914.
