Ruby Ann was sketched this week when we were on Beaver Island, Michigan. The island is located in the northern end of Lake Michigan and is a bit over thirty miles off shore of the mainland. Ruby Ann is an example of what became a traditional Lake Michigan fishing boat. The boats were enclosed because they fished year 'round from them...winter on Lake Michigan is not a fun thing. Unfortunately, the lake was over fished and the industry died. Today Ruby Ann sits askew on old launch ramp timbers, forgotten and rusting away.
