Dorothy Ann Pathfinder

The Dorothy Ann / Pathfinder backs into Grand Haven’s port this past summer.

It has been a busy end of December in Grand Haven’s harbor, but before we get into that, I’d like to pay tribute to my dear friend, Richard “Dick” Fox, who recently passed away.

Mr. Fox, as he was known to me, wrote this column from 2002 to 2016. As a kid, I was so excited to attend one of his “ship talks” at the Tri-Cities Historical Museum and finally meet him. We communicated frequently through email after that and he helped me learn a lot about the ships that were coming and going out of the Grand Haven harbor.
