Hi Andy, the Taylor brought coal to the power plant at Advance, several miles into the wider part of Lake Charlevoix. I think it was usually the smaller USS GLF boats (Clymer, Taylor, Calcite II) that handled those deliveries. The plant was taken down a few years ago; I don't think they got a coal load via boat since the late '90s. Maybe someone else has more exact dates.
