The 1965-built Great Lakes tug Karen Andrie and the 1962-built petroleum products
tank barge A-397 are seen in this photograph while they were secured alongside
a dock at Toledo, Ohio on the western end of Lake Erie on August 26th, 1993. Karen
Andrie sailed as Sarah Hays from 1965 until 1993. The barge has sailed previously
as Auntie Mame from 1962 until 1991 and Iron Mike from 1991 until
1993 at which time her current name was applied.
