Just watched the Atlantic Huron on the Port Huron live cam, upbound (8 Aug) for Superior, and I see that her stem has been crumpled back three or four feet inwards at the main deck level! Looks like she hit a wall or some other stationary object because her bulbous bow looks fine. On top of that, she's looking rather shabby. Wondering how much time she has left.
