Know Your Ships 2018, by Roger LeLievre
More Than Just a Boatwatching Guide
Know Your Ships, now at 184 pages and bursting with color photos of lakers past and present, is not only for those with a casual interest in the parade of nautical commerce, but also for more serious-minded individuals who have a passion for the ships that ply the inland seas.
Some refer to the annual Know Your Ships as the "Boatwatchers' Bible." We think of it as a field guide to boats and boatwatching on the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway.
