This year our auction is going to be all maritime, all the time!

Get your auction writing hand ready...

Here's a few of the great items in so far:


Maritime books including Lake Carrier's Association annual reports, a lifering from the Mesabi Miner, life jackets, framed maritime prints, maritime dvd's and much more.


Great Lakes Fleet

90 minute tour of the Roger Blough

24 spots will be available for purchase at the auction

This will be a winter visit with a date TBA in January or February.

Participants can see the engine room, galley, messrooms, pilothouse, and owners’ quarters. Participants must be in good physical shape, as the tour will

include steep stairs, tight spaces, icy conditions, and occasionally a brisk walking pace (such as across open decks). There will be minimal heat onboard the

ship, so participants must dress warmly. Safety boots are not required, but solid shoes or boots appropriate for winter conditions are a must. Hardhats and

safety glasses will be provided.

Value - Priceless!
