On the other hand, the Elissa (remember Ike) is out on tour this week.

That Niagara could stop sailing would be a terrible blow to maritime history education and sail training in America. Countless professional tall ship crew have come from her volunteer ranks, and at the moment there is virtually no other vessel underway that comes anywhere near replicating her educational experience.

“Very bad news” is a gross understatement.
