DEVELOPMENT OF A 1000-FT GREAT LAKES SELF-UNLOADER (MV STEWART J. CORT)

With the construction and completion of a new lock at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, a major change in the design of ships for service on the Great Lakes was possible. The lock permits the passage of vessels 1000 ft long by 105 ft beam, a jump from the previous size limitation of 730 ft by 75 ft. This paper traces the development of such a maximum-sized vessel and the shipyard that was specifically designed to construct it on a production-line basis.
