Oliver H. Smith

Heading for Open Water

Fishing Boat, Ice, Cold, Winter, Sunrise, Lighthouse, Kewaunee, Lake Michigan
A commercial fishing boat (the Oliver H. Smith) breaks its way through the ice of the Kewaunee, Wisconsin harbor on their way to the open waters of Lake Michigan. 

The ice in the harbor was thick enough to make getting out a challenge and it took quite a while for the boat to break through.  It would push and crunch its way into the ice, traveling 20 or 30 feet at a time before it would be halted.  Then it would back up and take another run at it…for the next 20 or 30 feet…back up and repeat until it finally got to open water. This shot shows it clear of the solid ice, heading out of the harbor.   I’ve included a short video of the struggle below.

The Oliver H. Smith, is a commercial fishing boat built in 1944 at Kewaunee Shipbuilding and Engineering Co. during World War II.  It was purchased in 1999 and is operated by Lafond’s Fish Market in Kewaunee.
