8. My grandfather was the captain of a Great Lakes ore freighter

during the 20s and 30s. We have photos of one of his ships completely covered in ice. Until the Fitzgerald went down I guess I hadn't realized what a hazardous business that was (he died before I was born so I never got to hear any stories).
