    Ships traditionally are considered female. And that ship in recent decades had been raised.

    First time I heard of the tragedy of the Edmund Fitzgerald was on “The Lost Side of Suburbia”, another comic here on GoComics, 2 of the characters were taken as prisoners by Jamie Jones, Davy Jones’ brother, ruler of the Great Lakes, whom had the crew of the Edmund Fitzgerald as his prisoners, when I looked it up I found info about her tragedy and Mr. Lightfoot’s song about the tragedy.

    Grammatical gender has little or nothing to do with natural gender. There are languages that have no gender, like Finnish and Turkish; Basque has two – animate and inanimate; Ganda has ten and Swahili eighteen.

    Maybe the Edmund Fitzgerald was a transgendered ship.

    I read that the Edmund Fitzgerald, like the Kursk and the Lusitania, sank in water shallower than it was long.

    I think the song works extremely well. It’s eerie and haunting. I’m glad that Frazz has decided to refrain from criticizing. (We heard it quite a lot here in Michigan.)

    I believe they recovered the bell in 1995, not the entire ship.

    Edmund Fitzgerald raised?? Not!
    They did recover the bell and it is in a museum but the ship remains at the bottom of Superoir

    Um, sailors always refer to their ships as “her” and “she” no matter what the ship is named.

    The Fitzgerald was 729 feet long and sunk in 530 feet of water of Whitefish Point. The bell is now at the Great Lakes shipwreck Museum.

    They only raised her bell. The rest remains on the bottom of Lake Superior as the gravesite of 29 poor souls.

    The Edmund Fitzgerald broke in two in heavy seas. Divers have surveyed the wreck, and brought back pictures.
    More then likely on Google Images somewhere.

    I remember when it happened and I’ll let a sailor talk about the gender of a ship, regardless of name.
