In this, our final installment of the 80th anniversary review of vintage Harbor Reports, we saved the Big One for last. Lake Superior's superlatives are well known, so there's no need to list them. Cruising on this lake does require some foreknowledge, so let's go back to 1953, when this report was published, and get a first hand feel for the lake 60 years ago. Click Here to view the old report. Then visit the two current overview reports S-00 and S-0.5. We, truly, have come a long way baby!
