Adam E. Cornelius
One of my favorite boat watching spots is at Clyde's Drive-In near Mission Point in Sault Ste. Marie. Not only are the boats very close but Clyde's has some of the best hamburgers in the area that are delivered to your car by a carhop. Once we get our order, we drive across the parking lot to be at the water's edge.
Last night we saw the Adam E. Cornelius pass down bound. Research told me that the Adam E. Cornelius was built in 1973 and named M/V Roger M. Kyes. It was renamed in 1989 to honor American Steamship Company co-founder and former chairman, Adam E. Cornelius.
The John J. Boland was named in honor of the other American Steamship co-founder.
