The motorvessel BLACK RIVER is presently sporting yet another version of the new Q & O funnel design and we wonder whether this may be the design to be applied to all the ships. She still carries the blue pine tree (?) on a white band, but this is then surrounded by two very narrow blue bands. The top and bottom sections of the funnel are black. This variant of the scheme is rather pleasing and does not offend the eye as does the blue and green design the other ships of the fleet carry.

An examination of the EDMUND FITZGERALD wreck will be carried out by the U.S. Coast Guard in the spring, making use of a "cable controlled unmanned recovery vehicle" equipped with photographic installations and a claw used to grasp recoverable objects. The critter is called a CURV III vehicle.
