Marine Star aka Aquarama aka Crusherama
  • title: Marine Star aka Aquarama aka Crusherama
  • note:

    This ship is the Marine star, built in 1945 by the Sun Shipbuilding and Drydock company. The Marine start was originally built for WWII as a vessel to transport troops. Ten years later the ship was renamed Aquarama and converted into a passenger ship. The Aquarama was only in service for about 7 years. In 1995 she was renamed back to Marine Star and moved to Lake Erie as a final resting place.

    One of the more interesting things I found about this ship is the nickname given to it by the media - Crusherama. Apparently this ship has issues with ramming docks, sea walls and other ships. You can read more about the mishaps here.
