Video: MANISTEE in Erie, May 6, 2005

While going through some old video tapes recently I found this video of the MANISTEE that I didn't even remember I had. After editing it, I've decided to post it here for the viewing pleasure of my readers.

The MANISTEE arrived off of Erie at around 1730 hours on Friday, May 6, 2005 with a cargo of salt from Fairport Harbor, Ohio bound for the Mountfort Terminal. This was the vessel's third trip into port that season, which was its first under the name MANISTEE after carrying the name RICHARD J. REISS (later shortened to RICHARD REISS) for 62 years.

Stern view.
