WHATSTORM LAKE HURON THUNDER BAY ,PAINTING HISTORY
WHATSTORM was a 45'sailing yacht that sailed the GREAT LAKES for many years never bowing to any weather defying wind and wave without hesitation.She set sail on LAKE HURON one bleak morning in NOV.of 1923 with a full crew ,sails chattering and greeting each pounding wave tipping her proverbial hat as she went by with much pride.She had a stop to make for supply's at Alpena, the THUNDER BAY area. THUNDER BAY was no stranger to her,but in spite of all the ship wrecks in this area over the many years she sailed this area many times before, never submitting to wind or crashing wave at her sail or bow.However she never arrived at Alpena, for her supply's on that fateful morning IN NOV. OF 1923. WHATSTORM and CREW were never ever seen on the GREAT LAKES again, anywhere. She just vanished so it seams.Fire side story's have it she met her match on THUNDER BAY and joined the many other ships at the bottom of THUNDER BAY. I thought it would only be fitting to make a painting of her in all her glory on THUNDER BAY braving rough waters and wind just the way she looked perhaps only minutes before that fateful morning.
