Passed Ziggy, Harold Ziegler’s yacht yesterday it was headed south into the Detroit River as I was heading north. My niece came over and wanted to see the RenCen and the Gordie Howe bridge construction. Didn't pass any freighters in the river. Passed one in the distance headed south as I was going past the Grosse Points.
Had no idea who or what that was, so I had to look it up! Were they towing the 35' "dingy"??
