Special Theme Of The Week.

The following 10 questions, worth a point each except where indicated, are about the loss of the laker Edmund Fitzgerald. The questions are more about the ship itself and the circumstances of the sinking than the song "The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald" so Googling is not only permitted, it is recommended. :D

1..."of the big lake they call Gitche Gumee." In what Longfellow epic poem is Lake Superior referred to as Gitche Gumee?
Hiawatha - Jerry

2..."when she left fully loaded for Cleveland." Two hours after leaving the port at Superior WI the Fitzgerald joined company with another down-bound laker. Name the other ship.
Arthur M. Anderson (Destination Gary IN) - Cringe
Bonus point, what was the Fitzgerald's real destintion.
Zug Island, Detroit - Cringe

3...Before the sinking, the other ship was using it's radar to guide the Fitzgerald. Why?
The Fitzgerald's radar mast had been swept away - Cringe

4..."The wind in the wires made a tattle-tale sound, and a wave broke over the railing." The Fitzgerald's maximum load line had been raised by a total of 3' 3" thus lowering her freeboard. Ship's load lines are named after a British Parliamentarian, Samuel who?
Samuel Plimsoll - Cringe

5...One for Drapes. The lowest load line - i.e. the line that allows a ship the greatest freeboard - is labelled W.N.A. What does WNA mean?
Winter North Atlantic - Cringe

6..."The Captain wired in he had water comin' in..." Name the Fitzgerald's Captain?
Ernest McSorley - Cringe

7..."and the good ship and crew was in peril." Not quite. What was the last radio transmission ever recieved from the Edmund Fitzgerald?
"We're holding our own." - Cringe
Bonus point, in a previous radio conversation with an upbound Swedish freighter, the Avafors, the captain can be heard in an aside saying what?
"Don't allow nobody on deck." - Cringe

8...'The searchers all say they'd have made Whitefish Bay..." What two navigational aids at Whitefish Point were unserviceable due to the storm having blown down the power lines?
Marine beacon - Cringe
Whitefish Point lighthouse

9...Which famous undersea explorer dove on the wreck in 1980?
Jacques Cousteau - Cringe

10.."the ships bell chimed till it rang 29 times.." The original ship's bell from the Edmund Fitzgerald was recovered from the wreck and a replica was substituted in it's place. On November 10, 1995 on the 20th anniversary of the sinking, the bell was rung 29 times, once for each of the lost crew members. It was then rung one final time in remembrance of all the sailors that have ever been lost on the Great Lakes. Who rang the bell the 30th time?
Gordon Lightfoot - Cringe

Hate to say it, but you have given me credit for an answer that is not mine. Lyrics 23 - Beach Boys, wasnt one of mine. Also, whilst i was close with Lyrics 29 - Bob Dylan - Spanish Harlem, i believe Reynoldsno1 answered correctly with Spanish Harlem Incident.

Having said that, i think i might have squirrelled away a couple more.
