The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Marine Review (Cleveland, OH), 10 May 1899

Full Text

An effort is being made by Capt. Geo. P. McKay of the Lake Carriers' Association to have the United States light-house board move Simmons' reef light-vessel from its present position in the Straits of Mackinaw to the new spot in Lansing shoal vicinity on which the Lansing shoal gas buoy is now located, and to have the Lansing shoal buoy replace the light-ship. The Straits are now quite well lighted in the vicinity of Simmons' reef and the light-ship could be spared from that place if replaced by a gas buoy. Lansing shoal is a turning place, and it is therefor (sic) claimed that the fog signal on the light-ship would prove highly valuable at that point. It is understood that Commander F. M. Symonds of Chicago, who is in charge of the Lake Michigan light-house district, favors the change, but an act of congress may be required in the matter.
