Neighbors on the North Coast: Cleveland's Connection to the Mentor Shoreline
"Fitted Out" Boat Being Lowered into Lake Erie, Late 1950s
The process of returning a fitted out boat to the water in the spring was an exciting one. Ropes were hooked under the boat and a crane then lifted the boat and lowered it into the water. While this scene takes place in a harbor near Cleveland, a 35-ton capacity crane in Mentor Harbor would have performed the same function there.
